“The Bird’s Nest” (Poem)

“The Bird’s Nest”

(Inspired by my son Martin)

The sparrows fly around each day sometimes they will stop for a rest
They will perch themselves upon a branch as they strive to build a nest

They know that they have to have a home for their young as they labour all day long
Carrying twigs back and forth so tirelessly as the little birds break into song

The twigs are all woven in and out what a skill it looks so neat
What a beautiful sound they sing all day as we listen to them tweet

This is the wonder of God’s nature He made them all unique
Refined and shaped in a perfect way there’s just something about that beak
