In the Realm of the Winter Wren


In the dark forest

in the thick trees

in the deep shadows

a small creature moves



and all you observe

is a tiny brown blur


 until it hopes up on a stump

its tiny tail cocked


and gives you an inquisitive eye

while you pause in your tracks

in the soft forest duff



you know you are in a magical place

with ferns growing thick

around uprooted trees


the home of this "cave dweller"

and you should be pleased

it is a blessing from Nature herself



to enter the Realm of this little brown elf!

Welcome to my nest! I hope you will enjoy spending time here with me and the birds. Thank you for your comments. I will try to get back to you as soon as I get back from counting more birds.
