Owl of Victory

what does an owl symbolizes?

Magic, darkness

or is it Victory?

Owl will howl

Let's do this guys!

We've got this!

Owl will hail

Sleep tight tonight

Tomorrow we'll fight

Owl will hoot

Eat healthy and stay put

Move and write it out

It is the Owl of Victory

Face her fury and might

Defeat you're a mockery

Because it is the

Owl of Victory!

Owl of Victory


It was a face that came in the night,

Something that seemed to be out of dreams of old.

A face of feather and knowledge, behind such eyesight,

A whisper of the wing as it would fold.

It was there a moment, and then gone again,

A rustle of feather disappearing into a whisper of the wind.

What did it mean, and to what remain

Did it point the way? The memories of it nearly chill the skin,

And yet, that face isn’t just a thing of the past,

28. Owl of Victory

Night owl

Wise owl

Night owl

Wise owl

Same every day

White owl

Snowy owl

December or May

White owl

Snowy owl

Eye on your prey

Night owl

Grey Owl

Up in the tree

Fight owl

Win owl

Your food victory.

Owl of Victory

O.W.L. – Out With Losing

A new Little League team motto

After a dismal last season, this year we’re cruising

National finals – we feel as if we won the lotto

Bottom of the ninth

Bases loaded

We’re behind

We need this run – expectations overloaded

I’m up to bat

Stare down the pitch

I swing and hear the crack

Thought the ball might split a stitch

The ball soars

The bases rounded

The crowd roars

Victory is sounded

The underdogs came through

Once we had started we couldn’t stop

Our prize – awarded to the crew

A trophy with an owl perched atop
