Robin's Nest

My own LJ is opening up, at last...I still can't see friends' pages, but this is a slight improvement...

I was returning from my walk when I saw,
On a house further down the street...
A Robin's nest with little ones
Popping out to meet

Their mother, returning back home,
Bringing worms for food.
Those open beaks and chirping noise
Showed the hunger of her brood.

Whichever creature it may be
Anywhere in the world...
The babies may be in nest or cot,
But in their mothers' hearts they lie curled!

The robin removes the fecal sac from the nest:
