This Morning

Pink roses, long mauve stems of hostas' in
bloom wave a gentle good morning
as the lavender's brightness


 chickadees, robins, jays,  cardinals,
and the many sparrows,

we called them all sparrows,
 in my childhood, or starlings,
I don't see or hear many of them anymore,

call to me,

echoes of children,
riding bicycle,  squabbling,
toddlers giggling,
 as they
me to play.
