The Nest Poem
In our nest- it’s safe and warm and dry.
Outside, it’s cold and rainy grey.
Stay with me, my love.
Don’t walk out that door to face the world.
I’ll find a way to stay- if you will.
Here, there is no one who can hurt you. Or me.
Safe and dry and warm and sleepy- Let’s stay this way.
Don’t leave to fight those dragons.
They’ll wait- believe me.
They’ll still be there tomorrow.
But for today- let’s stay here.
Safe in our nest where no one can hurt us.
The picture at the top of the page is actually a really neat piece of installation art by artist Nils-Udo during the 1970's.
