Wordle in order, rhyming, and which tells a story as briefly as possible:
With a rattle came the rest of egg in sight –
When I’m old I won’t forget that shell so light –
A stretch into the hole, where the feathers left
Showed she’d lost fight for her first; of young bereft.
Those who like to cry a lot can stop here. Any who prefer fairy-tale endings, please carry on:
I swore her brave defence had not been in vain
Woodpecker calls would come from that tree again;
I kept egg warm till hatched, then the chick I fed …
That bird in the tree once nestled in my bed!
