Taking turns

I did think about going into the office today.  It seems the better part to allow the cardinal to sing the day into fullness outside.  I may take my turn tomorrow or the next day.

I hear the bird outside the front door.
The cardinal
Will need to take this day,
Sing it into fullness,
Take its turn.
Keep it up.
That crested cardinal carries
So much more music
Than the 3 and 4 AM
I take a break
With my summer cold
I may offer such joy
Or perhaps the day after.
Perhaps then
I may offer such joy
In fullness
Take my turn.
Keep it up.
