Mr. and Mrs. Cardinal
I just know when he is around
His calls are so loud, seemingly urgent
He flits about from branch to branch
My eyes could not find him.
He doesn’t rest
‘Til he hears the answer to his calls
Suddenly, a beautiful red appears
On a sea of green
Soon, a lesser red alights to join him
They both fly into the skies…..
Mating season has begun.
