The Cardinal

See the little bird way up in the tree

Sitting there singing

Pretty as can be

With bright red feathers and pointed crown

He sits here proud

Like royalty

The song he sings in perfect tune

Warms my heart

Like a lover's moon

And every tweet a consistent stich

Sew' s his song together

in perfect pitch

What a wonderful sound to fill the air

And catch my attention

Wile I'm standing here

To look up and see that beautiful

Has given me inspiration

To write these words
