Junco Sonnet

Bits of nimbus cloud in teardrop form,
The juncoes who thought these days would be warm
Are gathering now on feeder and on suet
We placed as snow was coming, and we knew it.
First two, then six and finally eight or ten-
This picture’s different from the Summer when
Just one or three may follow me around
For company, the best so far I’ve found.
The garden’s never lonely, but with these
Companions, ever-present as the bees,
I have society down in the soil,
The likes of which no mood will ever spoil.
To pay them for their Summer company,
Suet and seed we offer boundlessly.
