owl-faced monkey quotes

God! I will not be an owl,
But sun me in the capitol.
When first we faced, and touching showed
How well we knew the early moves ...
The Owl and the Pussy-cat went to sea
In a beautiful pea-green boat,
A wise old owl lived in an oak;
The more he saw the less he spoke;
It was the owl that shrieked, the fatal bellman,
Which gives the stern'st good night.
The screech-owl, screeching loud,
Puts the wretch that lies in woe
In remembrance of a shroud.
When cats run home and light is come,
And dew is cold upon the ground,
Altarwise by owl-light in the half-way house
The gentleman lay graveward with his furies;
Sweet Suffolk Owl, so trimly dight
With feathers, like a lady bright,
When there is no tiger on the mountain, the monkey becomes king.
