This morning as I passed by the window
Something strange caught my eye
A flash of red, another too
Against the winter sky

I stopped, turned and pulled back the drape
And all I could do was star
Five little cardinals, three dads and two moms
Were happily playing out there

They danced on the lawn
Now covered with snow
They were sing so sweetly
As if giving a show

I watched them a while
Before the flew away
Flying by me they promised
To come back another day
