The Nest

A child lies sleeping at the breast
Drinking milk and taking rest
The mother croons to the child, “Drink
Well, for soon you must leave the nest.”

The child for his part does not understand
That he is to leave this promised land
Gleeful he looks into his mother’s eyes
And around her finger clasps his little hand
