July 15

Sing a Song

An Owl Sat Alone

An owl sat alone
(Hold up pointer finger)
On the branch of a tree
He was as quiet as he could be.
( Finger to lips)
It was night
And his eyes were round like this.
(Circle eyes with thumbs and fingers)
And when he looked around
Not a thing did he miss.
(Peer around)
