wrens departed

i've been calling
they'll be gone
for a couple weeks now

yesterday, the family of wrens
flew off

at one point
i was aware
of a lot of wren jabbering
in the hedge

later in the day
it was the silence
that i noticed

they were gone
but a bit of bird doo graced
the entrance
or perhaps the exit
of the birdhouse

i believe the reluctant flyer
(there was one holding everyone else up)
crapped upon leaving the nest
