Robin plump and perky

Your song trumps all the others

Briskly from the southland

With all your migrant brothers

Pacing grassy footing

Still brownish in the changing

Checking for a banquet

That comes with spring’s arranging

Busy at the dawning

A groggy world to beckon

Planning out a nesting

For sky-blue eggs I reckon.

What a rich suggestion

You give in simple faring

Cycles and survival

Neath Heaven’s gaze and caring.
