The Harbinger of Spring


I saw a little Robin today

said I, "Welcome! Welcome! Come and stay."


She winked at me as if to say,

"Spring will soon be on it's way."


I actually saw two or three outside my window at work today. One was gathering supplies for her nest. They all looked ready to settle in and stay for awhile. Sure hope so! It's always so exciting to spy the first ones returning from their winter homes. Now I'm ready to start seeing the forsythia and red bud trees begin blooming!

Lovely poem. It was a nice mostly sunny day today. It really does make you feel better to see the season turn.
