“Bird Feeder Time”

I have birds at all my feeders
But I’m funning short on my supply
It looks like a trip to the store
For some more seed to buy.
 
Since the weather has been so erratic
They don’t know what to do
All are about in search of food
I’ve seen them at fast food too.
 
Yes the wind, rain and snow at times
Pose a challenge they must meet
It’s a must that they must leave their shelter
In search of food to eat.
 
Whatever you and I can do for them
I’m sure they’ll appreciate
Yes, put up some feeders in your yard
Then just sit back and wait.
 
First comes one, then maybe two
In time many more will find
The food and goodies you’ve displayed
By being oh so kind.
 
Now it isn’t that much trouble
And a bag of seed lasts quite a while
The pleasure of watching at the feeders
Will even lake the old folks smile.
