The Nest - Poem by Burt Collins

One does not invade another’s nest
When so Lovingly placed
The string and twig entwined
in such seamless haste

No need for basement
nor sidewalks to
No need for windows nor a door
no purpose for a flue

The down be it’s furniture
The limb it’s only beam
Would God’s intention be for us
his most gentle scheme.
