Cardinal Cafe

Filling the trees with treats

They made all by themselves

With things from pantry shelves

For hungry birds

Peanut butter and seeds

Sugar cones for ice cream

And working as a team

They made the bells

From the window they watch

Feathered friends eat each day

Chirping as if to say

Thank you so much

Nice Guy

As leaves began to fall

The little boy named Jake

Always carried a rake

From lawn to lawn

He whistled while he worked

Never asked for a dime

Always had a great time

Just helping out

Being Neighborly

Doing her marketing

She saw the man next door

Knowing he was cash poor

She hatched a plan

She loaded up her cart

With his favorite foods

The things he just might use

For his suppers

As she was checking out

Paid for delivery

Bags of groceries three

Added a tip

It takes just a moment

To stand and hold that door

Grab a broom, sweep the floor

Do something nice

Someone’s life is better

Because you took the time

To set the mood sublime

Because you could

Hearts of Gold


Friends gather every day

To knit and cook and sew

For in their hearts, they know

Someone needs help

So, they use their talents

Special gifts to create

So no one has to wait

Any longer
