~When a Cardinal appears in your Yard, it’s a Visitor from Heaven~
Cardinals have long been symbolic of beauty in the midst of darkness, hope in the midst of sorrow, and renewal in the midst of winter.
Whether these symbolic meanings came from the folk proverb, or the proverb came from the traditional symbolism, in any case many people are reminded of the presence of a departed loved one when seeing a cardinal bird land nearby.
Here’s a pithy, poetic version of this traditional quote:
“Cardinals appear when Angels are near.”
This latter quote appears to have come from a poem and blog post by Victoria McGovern of Our Wander Life.
Here’s the context of the fuller version:
May you come to find comfort in and remember:
Cardinals appear when angels are near.
So go now, sit outside and drink your tea.
Keep a look out for the little red bird –
It is there, your loved one will be.
