On Christmas Morning

image borrowed from bing

on Christmas morning

on Christmas morning
Dad gathered us by
the kitchen window –
the backyard was dotted
with paintbrush red
cardinals, over half
a dozen males in their
most social season.
their mesmerizing
chubby cheeks stored
many songs as
we waited
to hear just one
