Little Bird in Snow

Bird on Snowy Branch

Had you not fluttered so quickly to that branch,
I may not have seen you at all, dressed as you are
in such scene-matching feathers, your wings
even barred with patches of snow, your back
the same soft brown as the branches.

And what I would have missed!  You!
puffed up against the cold, and chirping
as if you were born for this day!
