Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God. St Matthew 5: 8

In God's sanctuary
A song bird sings
The heart they carry
With sacred wings...
Tho' he can't observe
The art on the board
For the purpose it serves
Unless turned around.
To the other side...
He blesses the Lord
Who is his guide
On his journey bound.

Poetry by me AJP

I recently propped up a a little board on the window ledge (that I painted on several years ago)
for the purpose of manually pre-focusing on it to get a sharper focus of the song birds who are moving constantly on the other side of the glass.......The old window being rolled glass makes it challenging to get a good focus as it presents wavy distortions in the pattern of the glass.
