James Stephens was an Irish poet of considerable renown for wit and humor, who often observed the quirky side of things. In this case he considers what a little bird must busy himself with on a typical day, especially if he and the misses are expecting! I have no idea what “the fifteen acres” refers to, but here's a reader's chance to lay on a wee bit of Irish brogue. - Summary by Michele Fry
