Nest Woven with Wool
Photo by Amy LV
Students - this poem came from sitting and thinking in a spot of sun. I was listening to the spring-hopeful birds, looking out of our living room window, and I remembered the time my children and I saved their hair to leave out for the birds. One word dipped into another, and my thoughts turned to how birds and animals are wise and resourceful in using their surroundings.
This poem is about something I admire about birds. What animal do you admire? Why? Is this something you might write about?
In the nest above, you can see a lot of sheep wool. I've posted this photo before...I love it! Because we have sheep, the birds around our home help themselves to wool on the ground, wool stuck to tree trunks, all colors of wool! For more nest poems, see poem #240 and poem #275.
This spring, if you examine the nests around your home, you will see which building materials your own neighbor birds use. If you're feeling project-y, you might even leave out strands of yarn or string or even your own hair!
