Springtime means robins

Rain shower
Cheer-i-up, cheer-ee, cheer-i-o!
Standing in the sprinkler
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!

  8. Hello, My name is Donetta, I am friend to Michelle G., She thought I would enjoy your sight. She is correct in that.

  9. You are a wonder, Miss Gumbo Lily! Great poem. I'm picturing it in your nature journal... (wink)

  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!
