Goldfinch feeding in the rain

Goldfinch feeding in the rain †  
Crystals on the window panes †  
shining pavements and gurgling gutters †  
mirror pools and scurrying clouds †  
gaudy umbrellas, pink boots and plastic macs. †  
Today the grass looks greener, standing tall †  
wild flowers kaleidoscopic more than Jacob's coat †  
goldfinch on the feeder, eager sun flower seeds † †  
seems not to mind rain dripping from her tail, †  
somewhere dry her brood, three perhaps. Who knows? †  
Birds dashing to their nests, never look to find them, †  
ethnic congregations, narrow chattering streets †  
of dripping leaves, dark alleys, ivy on the wall †  
happy in the rain or sun,(not so much in winter) †  
each day the same no matter what the weather. †
† †
My tea that bit warmer, no milk today, †  
bought too much on Thursday †  
spoiled the first cup of the day, †  
curdled as I poured it, †
Will I never learn ?†  
Jack's curled on the rug ,one eye on me ,†  
the other on a walk........ †  
he knows itís raining, 'course he does †  
takes his lesson from the goldfinch †  
feeding in the rain.
