It's cold out, the snow still falling, but Cardinals brighten even the grayest days.
Through the trees, as far as the opposite goal post,
their neon color catches our attention.
The female waits for spring when, instead of chasing them away,
the males will be offering little gifts of food.
What do the birds mean,
with their hieroglyphics in the snow?
This one, at least, we know.
