Rivals the Rose

Roses are red
As I’m sure you have heard
But a bold vibrant red’s
Also found on a bird –

Who stops by each spring
With his feathers aflame
Blazing and brilliant
He goes by the name –

Of a Tanager – Scarlet –
and pictured in pose
His breathtaking beauty
Doth rival the rose!

(*I was sitting out on my deck the other evening when this beauty paid a visit. I was thankful he stayed long enough for me to fire off a few shots!)
