Mother Nature's Nest
By Alana R.
Grade 12, Colorado
Amongst the lofty braches lies a bird's nest-
She sits and sways to the lonely winds of winter.
Not a creature lives or stirs upon her,
Nor a chick or fowl sleeps within her.
Old and crickety like the tree she rests on-
Her only dweller is a patch of white snow
Nestled safely in her arms,
Waiting to melt.
