Not Yet Spring

The snow along the edges of the road is no longer white
No buds or new grasses surprise our eyes
Birds are desperate for food
The suet and the seeds need to be replenished daily

Hundreds of birds flock to the feeders,
Peck at the seeds spilled on the melting snow drifts
They are so close, no binoculars needed to watch the wonder of their feet
As they land on the feeder hangers or the way they open the seeds
