Strang Bed Fellows



Strang Bed Fellows


The broken silents at moonlight as the doves last calls for a friend
Who will protect me in darkness can you come near be my friend?
I will protect you through darkness called the owl setting high in the tree.
But how can I trust this bird of prey the owl so close to me?
My night vision is legendary called the owl high in the tree.
I see all movement and promise to let you sleep safely little dove on the branch below me.
Approaching dawn its spectacular rays awaking the little dove asleep in the tree
Strang bed fellows we make called the owl to the dove high in the tree,
Now can you watch over me while I sleep called the wise owl to the dove in the tree.
You gave me trust last night as I slept secure in this tree and now its for me to watch the wise old owl asleep high above in the tree with me.

    This "Strang Bed Fellows" poem is beautifully written and captures the unique relationship between the owl and the dove in a captivating way. The imagery and symbolism used in the poem are strong and convey a sense of trust and companionship.

    I would suggest adding more descriptive language or vivid imagery to further enhance the connection between the owl and the dove. For example, you could elaborate on the physical characteristics of the owl and dove to make the bond between them even more palpable for the reader.

    Additionally, consider exploring different poetic devices such as metaphors or similes to add depth to the poem and create a more vivid picture for the reader. This could help to make the poem even more engaging and memorable. Overall, this poem shows great potential and with some small tweaks, it could become even more powerful and evocative. Keep up the great work!
