The Lost Owl

Mural by Miss Anna Christina Rotor, c.2000
Wall mural detail by Anna Christina R Rotor, St Paul University QC. Note: The mural has irreversibly deteriorated and is no longer available for public viewing.

There was an old owl lived in an oak
The more he heard, the less he spoke;
The less he spoke, the more he heard
O, if men were like that wise bird!
