The joy of fresh falling snow
I hurry to get outdoors,
with lots of grain and plastic pail
I begin to do my chores.
Birds of all different colors
arrive to sample my seeds,
I ladle out an assortment
to supply their hungry needs.
Blue-jays, bright red cardinals
woodpeckers, timid little titmouse,
doves, wrens, even a gray squirrel
there are feeders all around my house.
God gave us these beautiful birds
to put joy into our winter day,
feeding them fills me with pleasure
because I want them all to stay.
