The Red Birdhouse

There was an empty old birdhouse
kicking around, out behind the shed.
One sunny spring day
I dragged it out and painted it bright red.
I wedged it tight,
inside the branches
on the Rose of Sharon tree.
And then I waited patiently
for a bird to come and see.
to be continued... IF a bird comes.

The birdhouse sure does look smart. Hope it finds a new resident soon. Thanks for visiting my new blog and leaving a comment it was much appreciated.
