A Goldfinch and a Chickadee
By Mary T. Hoffman
(Written 29 July 2006)

A Goldfinch and a Chickadee,
A doubly welcome sight,
Landed in our tree
After their busy flight.

Though they seem unaware
Of the oppressive heat,
Their families need care –
Obligations to meet.

“Bird-brain” folks sneer,
Though wars they fight
While full of fear –
No end in sight.

But lessons we learn
From birds, we’ll find,
Will help us earn
Some peace of mind.
