Confessions of a Tawny Owl

Confessions of a Tawny Owl

We are volunteers.

What we do we do for free.

We don’t get paid a single penny,

For the time we give.

We do not get stored away,

With the brownie bits.

We have to do a lot of work,

To prepare for our weekly meets.

We do have our own lives,

Our families and responsibilities.

We do get tired and poorly,

We’re only human you see.

When teachers get an array of gifts,

We get very little.

They get paid to do their job,

But all we want is a thank you.

We do it because we love to give,

To enrich others lives.

Seeing a Brownie smile,

Or gain confidence,

Makes it all worth while.

It gives us a sense of achievement,

Which cannot be replaced.

But please do, remember we’re only human,

So try to give us a break.
