Speak to the earth and it shall teach thee...and the birds of the air and they shall tell thee...Job 11: 7- 8

The cardinal may tell thee
From his perch on a tree,
With snow on the limb
And all around him....
"I've seen everything
On earth there is to see,
Except a warm spring..
But I wait for it patiently!"

Poetry by me AJP

    I agree with what Joe said - that bird definitely is looking like it is thinking "your kidding, right?". The snow looks like it is a wet snow that sticks well to the branches. I know how tired all of you are winter just going on and going on ... still, it is a beautiful snow and the Cardinal is outstanding!!!
