My Friends Outside

Written by: James Marshall Goff

Two Red Pines outside my
Window stand ready every day

Bristling with long needles
And runkled cones, still young

My first sound upon awakening
…..The sweet seeee---sawww
Of the Red Winged Blackbird,
Migrating home

Soon, the swamp I navigate daily 
On my walk will fill with
Feathered friends-

All of us excited by emerging

Comforted, together
