He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him. Psalms 126:6

The American Goldfinch

Bears precious seed..

To fill the need....

Bringing his voice

In perfect pitch...

He sings to rejoice

Spring's sweet song...

E'en when winter is long

Where we are at...

The call... per- chik-o-ree,

Ne'er goes flat

But is high and strong....

Poetry by me, AJP

Since it is very dreary this time of the year...(we have mud soup in our driveway from melting snow..).I decided to brighten the day by posting a spring picture that I shot, May 5th. 2008. It is fun to go back over my older files to find some gems wearing bright colors:)

    Thank you everyone for your kind words....I am not sure why you don't see them at your place either, Litz ..If you put sunflower seeds on a bird feeder maybe this will attract them to come.

    GORGEOUS capture. I love what you said about nature keeping you young (in your bio). I feel exactly the same way...if you enjoy nature immensely you will never grow "old."
