Finch

Last back porch morning
Before the mountains call me out,
And the finches are back on
The zinnias. And oh what marvel!
I would have thought that
Zinnias themselves
Are all the color in this world,
And then the finch – a lemon
Popsicle
In the berry sherbets, a busy
Little page in his lord’s livery,
Palette completer,
Dominion bearer.
