My Inspiration is a poem by Judith Pleasant
Beautiful Robin Red Breast.
Hello Robin Red Breast.
How do you do?
Sitting on the fence watching me,
as I look out at you.
You seem to know I see you,
even though I don’t come outside.
You sit there strutting your beauty
with such spirited pride.
You sing such a pretty song,
and I know it won’t be long,
till the warm weather comes along.
Then I can come out and listen to you
since you seem to like having me near.
So your wonderful chirping sounds
will be easier for me to hear.
You are so friendly and faithful
that you come by every year.
It is strange how you know, exactly when to appear.
It is like you can read my mind, to know,
when I will look out the window.
The beauty of your colors,
for me, you are there to show.
Beautiful Robin Red Breast, you are one of God’s favorite things.
And I think he sends you to see me every year,
because he knows how much joy,
your appearance brings.
