When thy flocks multiply and thy silver and thy gold is multiplied and all that thou hast is multiplied:

Then thine heart be lifted up.... Deuteronomy 8: 13-14


A finch of gold
Looks to the sky;
He questions why
It is so cold..
Thee won't be alone
For too long
In thy world of white,
Ye birds of a feather
In the worst weather
Are well known
Til' growing old
To be strong!
E'en tho' some fight,
Or take flight,
The numbers multiply...
Flock together,
And are rarely apart.
Go warm our heart
Little guy
Ye are not alone
In winters frigid air~
Uplift a glad song
And raise it high
Talk to God in prayer...
He is everywhere!

    Such nice verse, Andrea. Nice caputre, too. This little guy does not seem capable of flight, yet somehow he is.
