Alphabe~Thursday "L" is for Listen.


Alphabe~Thursday “L” is for Listen
A wise old owl sat on an oak,
the more he saw the less he spoke;
the less he spoke the more he heard.
Why aren’t we like that wise old bird?

There's more to learn about the letter "L" if you stop by Jenny Matlock's blog (off on my tangent)

Viki said...

I am a bad listener. I'm always thinking of things to say when someone is talking to me and then I don't remember what people tell me. Ugh!!

Great L post today and very timely as the last few nights I have heard an owl in the trees surrounding our property. I love sitting on the screen porch, just listening to him and the crickets. Thanks for stopping by my blog, Nan

I am like the wise old bird... although I don't usually think of myself as being wise:-) I love how striking owl's eyes always are also!

Well, I can't be like that "wise old bird" because I can't seem to keep my mouth shut for very long. Clever YOU, Ames, to come up with this. xoxo

What a perfect offering for the letter "L".

I remember this poem from long ago Girl Scout days!

Thanks for the fond memory and the lovely post this week.
