Finch's nest, never used, blown down one stormy night.
Made with blue lichen, moss, twigs and thistledown,
stitched with bright baler twine, an arc of one horse hair,
and tiny feathers from the hens (or even the white peacock), lined
with kapok from an old quilt thrown away inside the shed,
given as treasure, and brought to show me in a plastic box.
