Robin Sighting

The American Robin

Woo Hoo!! Today I saw my first robin.  At 9:15 this morning a robin flew over my house and landed in a tree in my back yard.  I’ve been smiling ever since!  Maybe spring will be heading our way after all.

So in honour of my first robin sighting of spring, I found this cute poem.

The Robin’s Bath

by  Evaleen Stein

A flash and flicker of dripping wings,
A wet red breast that glows
Bright as the newly opened bud
The first red poppy shows,

A sparkle of flying rainbow drops,
A glint of golden sun
On ruffled feathers, a snatch of song,
And the robin’s bath is done.

Happy Spring everyone 🙂
