To a nesting pair (Vineyard Verses)

To a nesting pair

In their nest out on Oyster Pond Road,

two ospreys posed in their pole-top abode.

In their return, he was the trailer…

two weeks late from Venezuela.

In April and May they performed at their best…

making love and rebuilding their nest.

Before the rise of too many more suns,

the nest will hold several little ones.

Mom and dad will show their natural talents

as protective and caring parents.

When they focus that piercing stare,

there is no more impressive pair.
