Mr. Cardinal Is Always Happy
Nice be back blogging again. Having my laptop cleaned has certainly derailed my blogging routine. Not that it takes much for me to get off track! I'd better get back into the routine pretty quick with the A-Z Blogging Challenge coming up in April.
In honour of Happiness Day which was on March 20th, I have written this little poem in tribute to Mr. C, my cheerful cardinal friend who visits me year round.
He is always happy and upbeat, despite the weather. Even never ending winter doesn’t get him down.
Just the sight of this gorgeous bird in his brilliant red plumage is enough to brighten the dullest day.
I hadn’t seen him for a while so I was delighted when he stopped by last night. Of course I had to take lots of photos and write a poem about him as he is so inspiring.
Here is a collage of some of those photos. I took them around 7pm when the light was beginning to fade but was still able to get some shots of my favourite bird. I'm so grateful for Daylight Savings time and the longer, brighter days. It gives me hope that spring will come, even in these fickle March days where it thaws one day and snows the next.
Happy Mr. C
Mr. C chirps from high in the tree
He doesn’t care that it snows,
A happier bird you’ll never see
He’s chipper wherever he goes,
I saw him again last night
Flitting from the feeder to the tree,
His red plumage was such a delight
It filled my heart with glee,
He doesn’t mind the snowy spring
He always has such a cheerful way,
He opens his beak and starts to singHe reminds me to be happy today!
