Nest Building

Beak filled with strings of
grass and clumps of fresh green moss;
nest building blackbird.

Moss 2

A gloomy day of greys and greens.
Mrs. Blackbird gathers moss
to line her nest.


The birds and I rejoice to see the Spring.
Their winter scratching
has loosened the lawn moss.
I rake it off today.
