Some mothers know just what to do
to build a cozy nest.
They know where every twig belongs
and choose only the best.
Their young are nurtured carefully
in colors warm and bright.
To comfort and protect them brings
these mothers pure delight.
They gather feed to fit each need,
till every mouth is filled.
Their eyes are ever watchful, and
their love songs never stilled.
How wonderful such mothers are.
What beauty they impart.
How blessed the little ones they bear
and care for, heart to heart.
Dedicated to my mother, Darlene Robbins,
and her very cozy
Robbins Nest ~
where every child
finds love enough
Happy Birthday, Mom!
Would you be mad if I told
everyone how old you are today?
Because you sure don't look 87!
We love you.
Sue, Dave, and the FAM
