She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household are clothed with scarlet. Proverbs 31:21

Nature's heart song
Carries notes of cheer
From cardinals strong
Who try not to fear.
Shall I start to complain
When we walk thru' sludge
After snow storms and rain...
I feel the sweet nudge
Of this bird so bold...
She does not fret
Whether it be hot or cold,
If the feathers of scarlet
Brings love to her household..
Poetry by me, AJP
