How to Build an Owl

By Kathleen Lynch:

  1. Decide you must.
  2. Develop deep respect for feather, bone, claw.
  3. Place your trembling thumb where the heart will be: for one hundred hours watch so you will know where to put the first feather.
  4. Stay awake forever. When the bird takes shape gently pry open its beak and whisper into it: mouse.
  5. Let it go.
