Yes! Rendered nil!

Your blog page is gorgeous!

I've only ever seen photographs of cardinals but I can see they are beautiful, colourful birds which would lift the spirits of anyone who sees them.

Hello FireLight,

Beautifully simple poem. There is a little red and black bird in South Africa that I always loved to see. Can't remember its name just now, so will have to go and look!

Your new look is also super!

Willow & Derrick, thank you! I am learning something new everyday. It was rather dreary here, so I thought I would experiment and tidy things up a bit. My post just prior to this was a mess. I was working on a laptop that was not user friendly for formatting.
Delwyn & Rowan, stay tuned for more poems from D.S.
To all,I greatly appreciate your encouragement.
