Empty Nest

 I've often said that the most important thing you 
can give your children is wings.
Elizabeth Edwards

Woven of grasses,
Sweet with summer
Under the pear tree—
Forsaken in November,
She found a little bird's nest
"Where is the bird, Grandma?"
She wants to know
"Flown, and how soon flown. 
Yes, how soon."
