“J’ai une âme solitaire”
There’s not much I can do about it,
Especially when I’m amongst other souls
I end up feeling more lonely than if there were no other.
Of course I can always try to beat it
But I get caught up in my thoughts about owls
who, as you know, are not what they seem.
My friend Fox keeps leaving his trail behind him
I keep finding the odd shoe or teddy he has borrowed
And he leaves them in my way, on the side of the road
or in the woods, and when I find his trail,
It makes me smile without fail.
Then I’m reminded that I’m not on my own after all!
Even if that feeling of loneliness is within me
The reality is: my animal friends are all around me
and they keep leaving treasures behind
For me – or whoever pays attention – to find!
With all my love to the owls, the foxes and all the animals who walk, crawl, swim or fly over this Earth.
