featherspoem # 6

it deceives, this winter warmth twice now
I’ve heard a familiar ck-ck-ck high on my back
porch and known it was my old tenant the
cardinal – when I looked there was the little
green wife up under the eaves surveying
the nest the robins had usurped last spring  
they’d remodeled with gobbets of mud is she
planning to get here first, repossess, renovate?
no no no little bird it’s too soon there are still
cold blasts to come, plummeting temperatures
I haven’t even scattered your sunflower seeds yet
