This poem was written and storyboarded by Caroline, a resident at Prairieview. The poem’s intent was to capture the essence of being in nature, in Caroline’s own meaningful way. With the help of Film Production Intern Cassandra Bauer and Caroline’s instructor Scott Swanson, In A New Voice launched its very first round of motion poems.

Poem Manuscript:

“I Am An Owl” by Caroline

“I am an owl

A wise, wise owl

I am constantly on the prowl

I search up high

I search down low

There are many places that I can go

I see the mice running around

So that I can swoop them off the ground

Then take them to my nest up high

Which is up, up, up in the sky

I am an owl

A wise, wise owl

I am constantly on the prowl

I think about how the human race

Could possibly get me misplaced

How the destruction of trees

Is as far as I can see

And I ponder if they get my nest

Will I then call those humans pests

For the rest of eternity”
