For the sake of birds…


I had never seen a female cardinal before...

A gift of feathers and strings…

  Brought of simple seed
A soundtrack changed
   No longer the distant rumble and horn
(a sound more familiar than most)

     a newness arrived 
Born of yellow and black
     in a shower of feathers
splashes of bright on stark white

Courtship displays
   unknown before
Brown Cardinal, and her Red
    (Dancing and teasing and chirping)

But a this is not stringless gift
   payment simple but required
Gratitude shown, committed and sworn-
   We will feed you through Spring.
