Poems by Victoria Krylova

Night Owl

While the world is asleep,
dreaming of busy days,
in the crystal night
hides an owl.

Quiet, the moon’s finger stroking its wings,
lost deep in thought,
half-watching the scampering shadows below,
smarter than the world knows.

Friend of the misty night,
sleep will come,
but later, much later.
For the owl, darkness is life.


I once was so sick, was so ill
that I ate a pill and some dill.
I canned my cat
and swallowed my mat
until I got rid of my chill.
