My husband called me over to the window
to check out this adorable pair,
happily perched
on a make-shift bench
in our front garden,
where they could watch the world go by.

Check out the ‘do on
that bright yellow goldfinch;
he looks like a real character,
with feathers ruffled
like he just rolled out of bed.
His little friend looks more
sleek and sophisticated,
probably a bit more reserved.
And despite their differences,
I bet they’re the best of friends.
