He Visited Again Today

weaver to nest zoom 2 - sept 2014


He visited again today,
Fussing over all the bits.
I didn’t mind,
He’s built that way,
Has a need
That everything fits.

Picking up the little strands,
Testing strength,
‘Look! No Hands!’.
One quick flap,
Up he goes,
Always building,
Ever in the throes.

Perfect instinct,
Industrious ways,
Beautiful to watch
Him work his days.

His mate appears,
Springs around,
Pops head inside,
Flies to ground.

Another reject,
He seems confused,
Lifts himself
To start anew.

No questions asked,
No need to explain,
He starts again.
