Little Robin

The North wind doth blow and we shall have snow,
And what will poor robin do then, poor thing?
He'll sit in a barn and keep himself warm
and hide his head under his wing, poor thing.
I saw a robin today and I remembered this little poem from a
long time ago. It is an old nursery rhyme.
Then I wrote one of my own,
just because........
Today a little robin called to me
From way up in my old crab tree.
She sang her song to give me hope
That with the weather I could cope.
I sighed, as she then flew away,
There would be no worms today.
The ground is covered yet with snow,
But I thank her, because now I know
That Spring will come,
Winter will be done.
So patience Bonnie,
Spring will make all things new
You heard it from the robin,
 so it must be true.


  1. Seriously...a robin!?
    The house flies that have taken over the large window in my fibre room are a (not so nice) sign of warmer days. I'd love to see a robin!

    1. At least you don't have those ugly stink bugs. I've had a few flies. I'd much rather see more robins.

  2. A robin is a sure sign of spring.
    I so enjoyed your poem, Bonnie.

    Wishing you a wonderful and blessed day.


    1. We have some robins that stay through the winter, but I never see them. That is why this one is special. Hope all is well with you. Hugs
