I fell in love with this endearing yard ornament
when I first saw it several years ago.
Its expression is unique. It can't possibly scare anyone.
This past winter, I didn't find it at its usual post and
finally located its head lying in a pile of leaves
not far from its neck. I put it back together
then walked on. Happily, it so far
remains as sentry beneath the tree, gazing goofily
at passing time and entertaining me.
