Backyard Party

Blue Jays and Black birds and half a dozen squirrels.
Sprinkled with Sparrow's, it's become quite a world.
Occasional Cardinal to add a little spice.
They seem to all be getting along fairly nice.

The neighbor, he feeds them plenty of food.
It seems it is working, they've become quite a brood.
As long as the house is buttoned up tight.
They're not a problem, I sleep fine at night.

Out in the front, a chipmunk does play.
Scurrying around and having it's way.
A Robin or two might ruffle their feathers.
I wouldn't change a thing if I had my druthers.

It feels like I'm blessed to have such a mess.
Nothing to do but enjoy it, I guess.
God certainly does have mysterious ways.
How he shows us his love in these warm summer days.

    Our feathered and furred beasties do provide so much entertainment. So glad you have the pleasure of their antics and songs to make your day special! I loved the story Robert

    hey, this is awesome. A second poem in less than a week and I'm loving it. It's the perfect summer poem, my friend. I really enjoy the birds in my yard too. I think it's a little finch family I am seeing, and also robins!
