CARDINAL: Some might call you proud, some might
call you shy, some wouldn't notice you at all
but that's all right by you. You're
reserved, and content to be an enigma to all
but your very closest friends.

The Cardinal Bird
William Davis Gallagher
Date unknown

A day and then a week passed by:
The redbird hanging from the sill
Sang not; and all were wondering why
It was so still--
When one bright morning, loud and clear,
Its whistle smote my drowsy ear,
Ten times repeated, till the sound
Filled every echoing niche around;
And all things earliest loved by me,--
The bird, the brook, the flower, the tree,--
Came back again, as thus I heard
The cardinal bird.

Ahhhh the cardinal! What a wonderful result, kaNd! The cardinal is very special to me, because it is the official bird of my home state, Virginia. I often see them perching on the branches in the trees outside my window. :)
