A family of migrants are in my front yard.

It makes me so very glad!

I worked to prepare a place for them;

until now I was rather sad.

This spring I put things out for a welcome

but no one took advantage then

so my smile was upside-down

until I looked out this morning when

I saw many of my welcome flowers cut

and children eating heartily

the food I hoped that they would find.

To watch it makes me happy!
