Bird Nesting

Comment on Bird Nesting and see more Ellis Parker Butler poems below.

Written by: Ellis Parker Butler | Biography
 O wonderful! In sport we climbed the tree,
Eager and laughing, as in all our play,
To see the eggs where, in the nest, they lay,
But silent fell before the mystery.
For, one brief moment there, we understood By sudden sympathy too fine for words That we were sisters to the brooding birds And part, with them, in God’s great motherhood.
