Though so near the town there was scarcely a sound to be heard, not even "the owlet to hoot o'er the dead man's grave."
The owlet is twin to that quaint little bird, so its name flew to her and stayed.
The frog by the pool had stopped croaking, and the melancholy cry of the owlet had ceased.
"I hope he did, then, and I'll tell you why," said owlet to me.
At that moment, the repeated call of the owlet came down from far above.
owlet wore rags for choice and he picked up a living making clothes-pegs and weaving osier baskets.
The owlet itself is a tiny creature, about the size of a sparrow.
But the keepers hated owlet poking about, because they said he took more than withies from the osier beds.
My owlet is still very friendly, but, to my sorrow, most untidy.
On the same querulous principle, he had formerly taken that of “John Howlett,” or owlet.
