the finch feeder swings
and sways in the chilling wind
outside my window

cold winter rain falls
will be turning into snow
will the finches feed?

a flash of bright red
a cardinal swoops down for
his meal of cracked corn

grackles and squirrels
fight over the bread crumbs while
tiny wrens steal them

the finches are here
feeding on thistle seed as
mourning doves ground feed

winter birds banquet
watching them from my window
I pass quiet hours
