The cardinal announces

His bright voice swoops
through bare branches, spreads
across the grass,

Woosh, and he sits on the wood fence

head bold as a warning
throat an unquenchable fire
wings like an ambush

Zooming across the garden

to his brown-and-rose mate at the top
of the stark old maple
he proclaims the day’s beginning.
