Artist's Description

Sing Your Song Darkly

Sing your song darkly Robin
For they cannot hear
Tis just I and His breath
To witness your love

Sing your song slowly Robin
Move me as branches
That sway to fro
In this patch of His land

Lift your voice skyward, dear Robin
And carry us yonder
Away from the eerie
And pull of the real

Sing your song freely
Dark Robin, Dark Robin
The souls of the past
Neither heed or they care

Sing to this new day
and all days
and our days
Sing while you can
And I’ll listen still

Sing your song darkly Robin
For they cannot hear
Tis just I and yourself
That belong to this new.


Tackling this picture proved a HUGE learning curve for me.
I have spent countless hours creating this scene in Coral PaintShop Photo Pro X3.
I used just about every tool available to me, (I won’t bore you with details), and said to myself many times… ‘oh so that’s what that does’. I have many previous, and not good enough versions, cluttering up my memory (note to self… clean up!!).

After finishing it I then thought I better find some suitable wording for it, I did consider Emily Dickinson’s ‘I dreaded that first Robin so’, but wasn’t sure about copyright and just thought it easier after all to write my own poem to fit it exactly. :)
I hope you like it.
