The Robin - A Welcomed Guest
There is no more welcomed spring guest
by Joseph T. Renaldi
Than the robin with its orange colored breast.
A splendid bird in the midst of the grass
Searching for insects and scurrying so fast.
Even though the ground is still so cold,
Yet - bringing birdwatchers a joy to behold.
Study the robin diligently and you will find
It is seldom shy of the presence of humankind.
An orange body and black face,
Still, it contributes to spring and summer's grace.
Its very presence stimulates the heart,
With an appreciation for nature's part.
