Cardinal

I just saw a cardinal this morning,

(Carinalis cardinalis)

She wasn’t real red like the male,
But plenty red for me,

She posed for me,
Fidgeting atop the green vine laced
Chain link fence,

I was 20 ft. away
In a screen enclosed gazebo,
Where animals never seem to notice
My dangerous presence,

Why red? Who made that?

What made that?

What’s she trying to show me?

What am I?

After a minute,
She flew away,

But I didn’t mind at all.
