Two Robins 2015-53

Hope springs eternal as Alexander Pope said in an “Essay on Man”, in 1732!!! I DO hope Spring itself, will be here soon and the advent of birds will show that the hope is not a foolish thought. The geese that are looking for open water are finding it scarce; just frozen tundra as their welcoming mat.  This WILL change and life will go on as it is decreed by nature. Or at least one hopes………………

Hooray, hooray, two robins

Sighted this very day ( lost??)

The first time this year

In the March blowing cold


A sign of Spring, so sure,

So sure; the beginning

Restart, of growth once again

About time I say, I say


Using past experiences in a

Remembrance of thought

No more grey skies and white

blanketed ground, instead


Blue skies and green

Carpeted lawn; Ah Spring

May it last forever, and may

Robins arrive each and every dawn
