This little poem is a traditional English-language nursery rhyme. It can be used in a classroom as a call and response to bring quiet or before a special story to set the mood.

Stories are very special and in order for us to make ourselves ready for them, it can help to call them in with a story or song. This is a wonderful poem to recite before a hearing, reading, or telling a story.

A wise old owl
sat in an oak.

The more he saw,
the less he spoke.

The less he spoke
the more he heard.

Let us be like that wise old bird.
