SPRING AND STRING TOGETHER
Upon a branch I hung some string.
Why simply because it is spring.
Yes spring is the reason why.
There upon that branch I left it to lie.
For spring that string on a branch I set.
Some would wonder why I’d even bet
Just why did I not throw it away?
That makes no sense they would say.
There is reason to do such a thing.
Not even if it is early spring.
Why did you litter with string in that way?
Because it is spring to them I’d say.
To litter is not within my plans you see.
I placed my string for others around me.
Others who in time; will take it away.
Such as the robin whom; in her nest shall lay.
