The sadness of summer passing

For something completely different, the children just put this on my desk, a complete hedge sparrow’s nest they found at the bottom of the garden. The poor bird must have died after laying her clutch, most probably here a victim of someone’s cat. Such a beautiful, delicate thing, the end of a line.
