Little EggsOne green morning, our fat little facesLittle Eggs by DeeForty-Five
Look out the kitchen window and
Find a robin and her nest on our windowsill.
She carries baubles and trinkets—candy
Wrappers and foil—before her vivacious
Red breast and weaves them tenderly into her nest.
My mother, laughing, says
She’s dizzy with anticipation, painting ponies
And clouds on nursery walls.
Soon enough little blue eggs fill
The happy twigs and their gaudy trappings
And the robin settles—snug, waiting.
We, too, wait for spring miracles on the
Windowsill. Weeks pass—she sits faithful—but
Eggs remain eggs.
Mother gets an odd pallor and avoids the
Kitchen window. Sometimes I think she wants to
Chase the robin away, but understands she’s dear to us.
We want to give the robin our support—she’s
Like family, now—but wonder how long it
Takes for eggs to hatch. Surely not this long?
“Sometimes things go wrong,”
Mother answers to our curiosity.
A List of PoemsI want to start off saying thank you to everyone who's been commenting and favouriting my work and to :iconxlntwtch: for the DLD on Marketplace. I am going to get round to replying to everyone this week; I've been super busy the last few days with important things which I'll explain in the next paragraph.A List of Poems by Gay-Mountain
So I meant to do this the other day but I spent the weekend getting drunk and dancing. These are some longer pieces that I've really enjoyed. Not all of them are that long, but that's just me.
