Cardinals at Twilight
John I. Blair
Cardinals are always the last birds to visit feeders in the evening, and usually the first in the morning.
I love the sight
Of cardinals at twilight,
Flying to the feeders
One last time in the dusk
And tinking softly each to each
Like a team of red-clad ushers
Opening the theater of night.
