Bastion: A Cardinal From Heaven


A bastion of hope

the cardinal sings

there are messages

from Heaven he brings


A far off place

visits from those that have departed

bright red feathers

love has not been discarded


Not far away

there is a nest

a bastion of protection

little ones rest


Landing in a tree

observing the world in a branch

seeking new adventures

continuing to advance


Flying away

a visit to ponder

smiles on faces

spirit comforted with wonder
