The Owl

This song is by Slapp Happy/Henry Cow and appears on the album Desperate Straights (1975).

When the day has gone
See him waking
From now until the dawn
Time is his
And from the bough he starts his silent glide
From the thicket to the ground

With eyes that see all
And haunted call
Finds palace on a hill
All is still
Wings through an archway, settles on the steps
See the marble in the moonlight

When the sky (has/is) (star?)
Seek your home
And o'er the valley in the misty morn
See his shadow he is gone
