trill of a Blackbird
the yip and cluck
of the Robin
the sun
your smile
bringing a heart of stars
with tiny feet of the rain
missing your soft step
on the stair

The green wire grid is to protect the tub garden being dug up by racoons, skunks, squirrels, groundhogs and possums. We got them all here.
