A Robin’s Nest

A robin’s nest is a small tragedy. The male and the female guard over their egg. Every day they go out for food, taking turns so the egg is always guarded. The chick bursts out of its shell into life.

Within three days a robin learns to fly. Within two days a chick attempted. Fell. Died.

Even with care and protection, a chick can fall all the same.

A new friendship is like a chick in a nest. Don’t let its wings flap too early.
