The water froze late this year,

Most geese said. “WE’RE OUTTA HERE!”…

The fountain’s shut down,

Fowl moving through town

Don’t want to spend winter here.

As pond water starts to freeze

The geese leave for another’s lees…

Leaving one or two

That injured, not flew

A bird feeder helps with their needs.

The turtles now buried in mud…

Their metabolism slows down, Bud,

And fishes in swamp

Will stay where it’s damp

To remain till the trees above bud.

More ducks and critters arrive

Moving on to stay alive…

The visitors rare

In sub-zero air,

But when things warm up it’ll thrive.

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
