Colorful Evening Encounter

Water drops pop, water drops pop

Pop drop high low many pops drop

Look out the window to investigate while

Late afternoon sun shines in my eyes but I see

Cardinals! Four babies as big as mama and

Papa, reddish, greenish, brownish, lanky

Loose feathers, checking out the ground

Learning to flap up to the feeder

Chatting with each other in soft popping noises

Oops, papa caught me staring with mouth open

Flap flop pop drops of soft sweet baby sounds

As the cardinal family disappears until I go away
