Sweet Suffolk Owl
By Thomas Vautor (1580?–1619?)
 
SWEET Suffolk owl, so trimly dight
With feathers, like a lady bright,
Thou sing’st alone, sitting by night,
    Te whit, te whoo!
Thy note that forth so freely rolls,        5
With shrill command the mouse controls,
  And sings a dirge for dying souls,
      Te whit, te whoo!
