Poem: Welcome

Two brown squirrels
spiraling up a sleeping Cottonwood;
a pair of Cardinals
flirting through budding branches;
a single yellow feather
waiting for me on the back step;
and a pair of Canada geese
honking a greeting from overhead.

I believe my friends the Meadowlarks
have been spreading the word
round the neighborhood.
At any rate, they've found me.
