"Still Life in a Bird's Nest" by Abraham Mignon‘A Deserted House’ by Kathleen Farrell The Society November 9, 2017 Beauty, Poetry 4 Comments Today I saw a little nest fashioned neat and trim, with plastic wrap, and grass and leaves entwined in feathered rim. What bird had labored to create a home so snug and warm and placed it hidden in a bush safe from wind and storm? Kathleen Farrell lives in the Hudson Valley region of New York.
