Back Yard

by Charlotte Heotis, edited by PM Heotis, 2024

Three bunnies cavorting in the play yard

Flip turns they do in air

Two woodchucks nibble nearby

Stopping now and again to look

A big crow flies in, stalks close

Enough to interrupt there dinner hour

Each chooses his favorite morsel

And goes his merry way

For sure they will all return another day.

I watch, trying not to miss a move

To spy upon their dinning

To take of note of their menu

They do not leave me a tip

For God has spread their table.
