Today the Cardinal Sang by Balisha
The world's been deep in slumber...a blanket covers all..
My garden's just been sleeping...my plants both big and small.
The chipmunk's underneath the mulch..making not a sound..
Spring bulbs are waiting patiently to push up through the ground.
Out my window yesterday a robin came to call..
We hurried there to see him...he left us in the fall.
This morning bright and early..a sound came to my ears..
I hadn't heard it for so long...it sounded very clear.
A bright and cheerful melody is one I love so well..
I saw a flash of red just now and that is how I tell..
It's a cardinal here this morning to sing his joyful song.
Spring is on it's way today...I know it won't be long..
The world's awake and plants will grow I'm happy now to say..
The birds will soon be singing in a chorus bright and gay.
So open up your windows and breathe in the cold fresh air...
You might just hear the cardinal... his song is everywhere.
Cardinals are a favorite of mine and so is writing simple poetry.
