It’s kind of a sad story

Like a baby bird

Attempting to take it’s first flight

Early and unsupervised

Flutters down the tree

And lays on the sidewalk stunned

Until a few minutes later

It is gobbled up by a hawk

It is too late for us

But if it gives you some relief

It was always too much of a fragile situation

You couldn’t have intervened

You were just the invitation in the air that day

The nest was always faulty
