Baby robins nesting way up in the tree
squeek and squawk as they look at me.
Mistaking me for mama... I don't have any food
They look at me and chirp... How can I be so rude?
Only a few days old, but they are growing fast
Eager to see the world, as it's big and vast.
Who will live and who will die
I can not tell so I just stand by.
Watching them daily, day in and out
for the last few weeks, they are strong no doubt
All I can hope for is that they survive the test
and the strongest will live because it is the best
I have no clue who will live and who will pass
To me they huddle together, and form a little mass.
Sweet little babies, I hope each one of you will live
There's so much to see and you have a lot to give.
One by one you will leave, and there will be an empty nest
Flying high up in the sky, spreading your wings to start your quest.
All to soon you will leave, and the nest will be alone
Waiting for the next, to build it's new home.
