Poor Little Blackbird Chick

entry picture

Poor little blackbird chick
has fallen from his nest
It’s difficult to know 
what to do for the best

Should I attempt a rescue
place him somewhere safe and sound 
Or should I turn a blind eye 
and leave him there on the ground 

I don’t like to see him
helpless and all alone 
Sheltering from harms way
hunkered down by a stone

Busy mum comes and goes 
with food to make him strong
I hope he will escape
before a cat comes along

I don’t think I will sleep
I don’t think I will rest
I will retire to my bed 
hope and pray for the best

This is so moving in its simplicity and clarity. Praying for him as well.
