Robin Red Breast - Poem by Nicola Jane Dady

There once was a Robin red breast,
Who would sit upon my fence.
I would stare at him for hours,
Wondering how long he would rest?

He would stop by my garden,
each and every day.
He would perch and discern,
Then he would swiftly fly away.

I would await him every morning,
listening out for his cheerful chirp.
Along he would come as predicted,
downing feathers and looking alert.

He would take in the environment,
So relaxed and on his own
I would often sit and speculate,
Did he have a family? A home?

The red and fluffy feathers
they orbited his chest.
He would groom them until immaculate
So he looked his very best.

One day I sat and waited
for my little friend to arrive.
He didn't then or ever again,
this took me by surprise.

I often wonder what happened
to my handsome Robin mate.
Did he find a family?
Did he succumb to fate?

I miss that Robin Red Breast
that I came to know.
I look for him from time to time.
Why did he have to go?
