First Robin Of Spring Poem by jim foulk

First Robin Of Spring

Rating: 5.0

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. Hugs Anna xxx

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
