The Sparrow's Nest

Read "The Sparrow's Nest" at The Eldritch Dark:

This simple poem from Clark Ashton Smith (CAS) celebrates a seemingly accidental discovery, as the speaker braves unwelcoming "thorned blackberries" and "unpruned peach" boughs to experience the simple delight of viewing a bird's nest in amongst all the overgrown vegetation.  It's a wonderful celebration of the small rewards available to a careful and patient observer of the natural world.
