# # A Short Winter


They looked

to me like

autumn leaves

struggling to

hang on


Till it

dawned on me

they were

robbins

rehearsing

spring's song

    This is a darling poem. You would not believe the popups I had to dodge
    just to read it! Picking my way around all the landmines here, lol. (Report) Reply

    Charming imagery. The robins did not return in February.
    No wonder it has been so cold and snowy. But
    the brave daffodils are beginning to bloom.
    Lovely write...10/10.

    Always your friend,

When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
