cardinal virtue, cardinal sin

by billgncs

I have a window view at work, and a cardinal pair return there each year to battle their reflection in the glass

virtue

regal cardinal bright
adorned with pomp and plumage
bless me with beauty

sin?

the cardinal flies
again, again against the window
facing a foe
he cannot know
or rise above
