A robin gathered sticks, not one;
she gathered two.
And others then if they were in
her bird’s-eye view.
As coarse or fine enough, of both,
before she flew.
Inside a tree, a branch in there
would host her nest.
Oh, that we knew what robin cue
in her red breast.
Made her decide, by what she saw,
which bough was best.
A stick upon a stick, and string
and straw were laid.
This nest must meet her body test
and did, when made.
Who cares if minutes to make sure
