FEEDING THE BIRDS

Submitted By: hayseed

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.


Bible Verse....Genesis 1:20
