Three Eggs In A Nest

Winter is coming

And the bluebird in my backyard is gone

He left three little eggs in a nest

A nest made of twigs and golden leaves

Fallen from trees

Left on our doorstep

By you

A nest that will hold us warm and tight

Through the dark nights

Until we can see the light

Of longer days

And hear the bluebird singing in our backyard again


Song is Flightless Bird by Iron & Wine. Painting is by Nashville artist, Lauren Ossolinski
