The first line makes a statement about a subject, and the second line progresses to a description of the subject. In the third line, a new subject is introduced with a statement. The fourth line unites the themes of the first three lines.
This evening, I heard from a friend whose infant son has shown he is no longer a helpless infant, and her news made me think of this challenge.
my young friend’s son is no longer a newborn:
he can now roll from his back to his stomach.
the young birds left their nests in the spring.
young men leave home later than young birds, but leave they must.
