Winter's Banquet

I forget that the year-round birds need to eat, too, when winter comes.
So I was startled when I turned a corner near home 
to see this tree full of berries, it's complementary colors of red 
and green glowing brightly in the sun.
Later, after the leaves have dropped away, the berries
will turn brown, providing a food source
for robins when the winter temperatures drive bugs 
and worms deeper underground.
