Migration Celebration

The first of the migratory birds are showing their bold colors. Here’s a little poem to celebrate.


Kinglet with a Golden Crown

A bright stripe of gold pops through a grayish-blue day

     On cue, announcing your presence with careless joy

          Rightly judge me as slow and gentle –

               As a creature deeply tied to gravity


     In safety and laughter you jump ever faster

          From leaf, to limb, to trunk

               Pause on occasion to pose and show


           Your bold, lucky colors – even in winter

                You’re something to behold
