When swallows come

The swallows are busily building a nest 
 Across from our front door. 
They’re making a dreadful mess, 
And I know I should really knock it down, 
But the thrill of having their babies so close 
And being able to watch them grow 
Overrides whatever need I have for tidiness. 
Plus, watching them flit back and forth 
 With their pointed wings and split tails 
Is almost as much fun as watching the fawns 
Dancing in bouncy circles 
Around our sunken garden…
