Springtime means robins














Robin
Rain shower
Cheer-i-up, cheer-ee, cheer-i-o!
Standing in the sprinkler
Hopping
with an ear to the ground
eating worm spaghetti
Mouthful of hay
of twine
and string
to build a nest
in the Ash
for me
to see
Red breast
do your best
To hatch a clutch
of turquoise eggs
Cheer-i-up, cheer-ee, cheer-i-o!

  10. You friends are SO encouraging. The reason I've posted this poem is first of all, since I'm a homeschooling mom, I've been doing the poetry lessons right along with my kids. The topic of the robin is easy -- one of my favorite birds. Thanks you gals!
