For Ozzie

I See a Cardinal

Patch of crimson bright
Against pine green
Movement slight

Head turning
Eyes watching
Carrot orange beak

Hop to this branch
Hop to that
Frozen, now flutter

Up to the highest tree top
Tiny red weather vane
Survey your kingdom

Call to your lover
Sing loudest and longest
Mated for life

Down to the ground
Chirp, chirp
Beak a bug

Back up to your branch
Cock your head
Look my way

Sail away to the woods
My melodious beauty
Your home

Visit longer tomorrow
That I might
Extend my delight
