Birds Nests (John Clare, 1864)

‘Tis Spring warm glows the South 
Chaffinchs carry the moss in his mouth
To the filbert hedges all day long
And charms the poet with his beautifull song
The wind blows blea oer the sedgey fen
But warm the sunshines by the little wood
Where the old Cow at her leisure chews her cud

Composed 1863-64  First published 1864
