Bird in the Bath


New cement bird bath

Stands upright in high winds

Positioned near the elms

for summer afternoon shade

One two three four days

No interested birds

Until today

Robin performed detailed inspection

Jumped from rim to rim

Tasted water

Took the first plunge

Splashed and preened happily

So worth the wait
