Our Wildlife Friends

This is the time of the year
birds are appearing everywhere
I enjoy watching them with family
Special moments they are we share.

I keep my bird feeder's filled
with seeds for the birds to enjoy
somehow my taking care of the birds
Makes me feel again like a young boy.

My favorite birds are Cardinals
because they seem to trust me most
sometimes they'll perch on a nearby limb
Maybe they've accepted me as their host.

What fun would the outdoors be
if we didn't have our wildlife friends
to entertain us and make us smile
What fun would the springtime be?
