For every Bird a Nest —
Wherefore in timid quest
Some little Wren goes seeking round —
Wherefore when boughs are free —
Households in every tree —
Pilgrim be found?
Perhaps a home too high —
The little Wren desires —
Perhaps of kale so fine —
Of leafy greens e’en superfine,
Her pride aspires —
The Lark is not ashamed
To build upon the ground
Her modest house —
Yet who of all the throng
Dancing around the sun
Does so rejoice?
[Ever so slightly adapted from] Emily Dickinson

A Bird came down the Walk,
He did not know I saw
He hopped into the patch of kale
And ate it though quite raw.
Okay, this is quite possibly one of my favorite comments, ever!
How cute is that bird in the nest:)
Awesome amigurumi Ms Hannah and the kale makes a lovely contrasting background (and meal for the bird ;) ). Winter…time for amigurumi production! ;)
:-) Hope you’re keeping warm, Hannah! We’ve had a few days of Indian summer and even today, although windy and a bit cooler, it’s lovely.
Today was also lovely over here, and happily, quite a bit warmer than expected. It truly felt like spring- What a glorious relief from the cold! If only it would last… Thanks for the “warm” wishes. ;)
Love it :)
A beautiful poem and an adorable little birdie. Look at the tiny little beak and those sweet little winglets! <3
You make the most darling little designs.
How cool is that little red bird on that nest of fresh curly kale! 👍
So cute! Reminds me that I have a few amigurumi projects half done lying around.
That is so cute and adorable :D

That might be the most precious thing I’ve ever seen! :)
Aww, how cute! Much nicer that what I found in my kale (two snails that I had to set free in the park across the street).
How can you not love a bird that makes its home in kale, especially such a cute one?
