This is the day the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
Psalms 118: 24

I found it challenging to shoot this picture of the male cardinal through our fiber glass window screen. (you can see the grids behind the cardinal.) .Although it is not perfect by a long shot, I like that the eye is sharp at least.

The cardinals rejoice
Delivering grateful voice...
To sing their glad song
Of thanks today...
Tho' life is not long.
On earth, it is that way;
Still they bring us cheer.
With crest held high
Proud simply to be here
Ere' it is time to die..
Poetry by me AJP
