The Nest is Best
Baby bird, out of its nest, helpless on the ground.
“Should I put it back?” you think, looking all around,
Watching for the mama bird to fly into the air,
Or maybe leave because she smells your human odor there.
But now here’s a surprise for you: replace that bird who fell!
Mama won’t desert the nest; songbirds cannot smell!
