Sunday Sonnet!

robin on branch


Now that the sun has gone to take his rest,
And we have eaten our own evening meal,
We eagerly await our garden guest,
The little redbreast to bird-feeder steal;
While other feathered friends will come and go,
Throughout the day with little or no rest,
Our robin, at sunset, flies to and fro,
As though he comes to feed at our behest.
He sits on perch and lifts his handsome head,
I’m sure, he knows we’re watching from within,
He senses there is naught for him to dread,
Secure as he would be with kith and kin;
The mysteries of Nature none can plumb,
Replete with marvels rendering many dumb!

  3. How enchanting. There’s something about robins. They always seem to have a connection somehow with humans.

  6. A very nice picture. Your relation is enviable, indeed. A hopeful sign in view of the endangered garden birds across Europe.

  11. Ohhh I love this! Reminds me of the the days Frank and I sit and watch our little bird neighbors visiting our patio. ^_^ Even with the blinds pulled I always feel as though they can feel our fascination! 💕
