Noel

by Linda Pastan

Like a single
ornament,

the red cardinal
on a pine

outside
the window

is our only
decoration,

until
the snow.

**********
I love poetry; most poems tell stories by evoking images or moods or feelings. A good poem can make us "see" things differently. We have a lot of cardinals and it's great to think of them as beautiful decorations to stimulate our love of beauty, nature, and poetry.
