As the cold of snow in the time of harvest so is the faithful messenger to them that send them: for he refresheth the soul of his masters...Proverbs 25: 13

The blue jay kept his goal
To refresh his hungry soul
With the corn that he ate.
Alas! Winter is a cold friend
On such an early date;
But he is faithful to the end.
Poetry by me, AJP
