Ottawa's Festival of Ideas Since 1997

I am Kay McKeever

I am a friend to owls
I wonder how to take care of owls

I hear owls hooting
I see trees
I want owls to stay alive
I am a friend to owls

 

I pretend that I’m an owl

I feel brave
I touch owls
I worry if owls get sick

I cry when owls are dead

I am a friend to owls

 

I understand of owls
I say, “I like owls.”
I dream about owls
I try to not make owls die

I hope dreams come true

I am a friend to owls
