The Fall Blue Jay

The blue jay calls from the oak tree,
as the wind swirls fallen red leaves.
He jumps and squawks for all to see,
as bright feathers shine in the sun.
The cardinal spies from his nest,
watching his partner join the fun.
Singing out her sweet melody,
the blue jay joins and sweetly sings.
Their chirping choir sounds heavenly!

Tania, your beautiful poem captures everything I love about my backyard, especially in the red leaves of Autumn, as my back garden is a suet and seed haven for both blue jays and cardinals.. among many other birds! :) I adore and admire your lovely and lively poem. Belated congratulations for your win in Constance's contest. Warmest wishes.. ~Susan
