The Still Great Egret

I saw a Great Egret standing on
a post this dismal day.
His white feathers shown bright
against the grey and gloomy bay.
The wind circled around the post
taunting the Egret to sway.
But the Egret stood silent and
still, moving neither way.
The rain poked the quiet Egret,
but not a feather did stray.
I wondered why in a fierce squall,
the poor Egret would stay.
God whispered, "Stand strong the storm,
and my Glory I will display."
The sun squelched that vexing gale,
and the Egret soared away.

Dedicated to Cheryl and Doyle Grundy

I second Crissy's vote - more poetry. Your vocabulary is so varied; I love reading rich words.
