Went outside this morning to see
this little guy resting in the lilac tree.
We watched the little body try
to raise its head on mama’s cry.
So new this tiny wonder lay
new this morning, new today.
So vulnerable and unaware
safe in his castle in the air.
Safe within the confinement
a life so new, so innocent
So much in store, so much unknown
And here he lies all alone
Safe and sound till mom comes home.
