A Childs Aventure

Racing down the stairs
ready for the day's adventures
in a hurry to get outside
mother making me eat first

I bolt my food as fast as possible
then flee outside and down the road
stopping at Bobby's on the way
his mother telling us behave

Together we head for the woods
right deep into its heart
there a large tree stood
with branches hanging low

We climbed up to our tree house
checked around, then settled down 
would today be the day we thought
eyes fixed fast on a falcon's nest

They should be due to hatch now
a cluster of three eggs in nest
look says Bobbie there is a crack
sure enough he was right

Fascinated we watched the chick hatch
struggling to break free of its shell
wet and sticky looking very bedraggled
to us lads it was the most beautiful sight

    kids really have more options to be natural and be with nature.As grown ups we are used to be proactive and nothing is real.Apart from all these loving and admiring nature is a big skill.Wonderful shadow. A beautiful poem. (: ) Jenish.
