At last they arrive
Heralding summer warmth
Making home with us

Repairing with mud
Prepared for their arrivals
Expectant parents

We wait as they wait
We celebrate together
New life emerges

Each morning now breaks
With cheeps of hungry mouths
Parents so busy

We give our gifts
Nuts, seeds, fat and fruit
Our thanks for them


Linked up at carpe diem.  My gran's home had swallows visit for decades and it was always exciting to see them arrive.
