    For a rather short write, it conveys a lot of quality descriptiveness. Good write as usual Sara.

    Based on all the bad weather I guess there is no shortage of water for the bath now. Thanks for descriptive Poem, I may now decide to look a little closer the next time I see a bird.

    Loved it, The cardinal is one of my favorite birds. Funny that in nature the male bird is dressed so flamboyantly and the female is rather dull in plummage. The exact opposite for us humans.

    It is always a lovely sight to watch birds descend for bird bath. Very well penned Sara. I had been away from soup for some time now and so was not able to visit your poetry.
