The Cardinal’s Prayer

Thank you, Source of Hope,
For the cardinal’s exuberant song
On this frigid winter morning.
Not yet springtime, calling for a mate.

Many would say
Global warming,
Climate change,
It is a sign of doom.

Perhaps they are correct.
Even so, I choose to hear it as a prayer,
Calling out in loneliness, but with faith 
That it will be answered.
