First Robin Of Spring - Poem by jim foulk

Today heard a beautiful
sound, it was up in a tree,
sitting on a branch so alone,
spring is near by.

As my first robin to
see is looking down
on me, so peacefully,
robins are a sure sign,

warm weather is on its way,
a new start, new beginning,
beautiful sounds coming
from this beautiful robin.

Winter so cold, so long,
snow almost all gone,
spring flowers just
a stone throw away.

Dear robin you bring such
joy and comfort to my
heart listening to you,
your welcome here anytime.

    I'm not usually a fan of nature poems, but I enjoyed this. I think the simplicity of it is what really makes it work.

    Jim you have a wise poetic soul with a complete absence of pretension - unlike many on this site. You share your feelings with absolute honesty and your love of beauty and the natural world is infectious. I can see and hear your pretty robin. Thank you for sharing him. Love, Allie xxxxxx (Report)Reply

    This is a stunning piece and for many reasons, its simplicity and timeless energy, so positive to read, and as the bird song...it leaves a wonderful taste in the mind
