In Our Backyard

While pearly drops drift from the sky,
as soft as angels' wings;
A graceful spruce encased in white,
staunchly waits for an early spring.

As crimson cardinals huddle close,
like holly berries bright;
Soon dash off to grab some grain,
an feed with sheer delight.

Along the fence the gray squirrels climb,
seeking sustenance and warmth;
While nibbling on nuts and pine cone treats,
they still shiver in the storm.

And as we view this winter scene,
through a frost-laced window pane;
We're grateful not to feel the chill,
that Nature's come to claim.
