He did not make a sound and was high up in a tree. I whistled at him, but he didn't respond.
Look at that! Almost makes me think of an orphan child in her night clothes sitting up there all alone. Sort of a sad, chilly picture.

Here on the snow-scattered prairie. Yesterday I ran into this poem by Oscar Wilde and thought it fitting enough to share:

"And when the wind and winter harden
All the loveless land,
It will whisper of the garden,
You will understand."

There are six robins who visit the warm water birdbath under my window several times a day. Poor guys "missed the last train to the coast."

They linger a while after drinking. I wonder how they are staying warm at night. Bad storm coming in today with temps below zero.
