A STORM BROUGHT TREASURE
A storm brought treasure down to me -
a wondrous nest - blown from a tree,
where, through the seasons, it had been
kept secret on a hidden limb -
(To think so fair a nest was made
deep in the branches, undisplayed -
- and I had failed to see or hear
a brood of birds raised very near!)
It was so artfully designed
'twould be a pity not to find
the circled twigs and grass-lined bowl
created by the feathered souls
That through it all a ribbon wound -
a strand of pink - entwined around
in loops and twists and curlicues -
- whose nest it was, I wished I knew.
