The Nest Poem

110.Our Nest

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.


  1. Dear Sandra Rose,
    A very interesting and thoughtful poem. I think I shall stay warm and cosy, just for tonight. The 'dragons' will just have to wait.
    With respect, Gary.

  2. I like it. Lets all stay home snuggly at home.
