Five of them sat, right there on my deck.
Did they not know it was winter- what the heck!
“Go somewhere warm!” I called out to them.
They completely ignored me, “Ahem…AHEM!”
“Oh yes good sir we hear your concern,
and it is true that for warmer weather we yearn,
but have no fear for our feathers are warm,
they’ll hold true in any blizzard, no matter how bad the storm.”
“Alright then my friends, I appreciate that you stay-
Winter is tough, but with friends it can be okay.”
They gave one final nod, and took off towards the sky,
I waved to my friends, knowing it was not a final goodbye.
