Saying Goodbye

Like the tiniest finch in the curve of our rain gutter
The roof protects the eggs and nest which lay there,
Shallow and cup-sized is the female’s safe bird’s nest,
Where her little head pops up until even she must rest.

Her chirps, music to my ears as she sings and sleeps,
Digest and regurgitates substance for those who grow,
Her work is now partially over until she must let them fly,
Regrettably, like all mothers, she will then say her goodbye! by JKC
