Wouldn't you dance for love

Wouldn't you dance for love

A Poem by Patricia Wedel
"

Robins hop across our lawn like moonstruck lovers...

"

Robins are always welcome in our yard as 

they look for earthworms and fallen berries... 

Singing a song of hard times and and a place to dine 

They love fruits and berries, and sweet cakes... 

even pastry dough that Mom has rolled with leftovers 

Their happy attitudes are contagious and sweet... 

as they find a mate to build a nest of twigs and string 

Robins are gregarious birds and often dance two by two... 

Wouldn't You.

I adore Robins. We have them nesting in our garden at the moment Pat. So busy collecting juicy grubs to feed their young. Their nest is hidden in the ivy trailing over a boundary fence. I enjoyed your lines so much. Beautiful imagery, particularly of those pastry pieces being left for the robins by thoughtful mom after her baking was complete. Plenty of nostalgia in this write. I thought of my own Nan and her love of birds. I just love the joy that these little creatures share with us. These little creatures can lift your spirits on a dull day. I can picture your Robins dancing to Brahms. What a delight that is. Sending you and yours warm greetings from across the pond Pat. In these days of lockdown we are spending most of our time in our garden. Thank goodness for nature.

A wonderful poem shared dear Pat. I have the birds in my yard. They love my old pine tree. I agree, would be nice to dance, like the robins. Thank you for sharing the amazing and hopeful poetry.

Amen, Thanks !
Like Christine, I just adore the beautiful little robin. So cheeky, so full of confidence, and as we have two bird tables in our garden, we have plenty of feathered friends who visit, including robins.

Don't think we have them nesting, but they are clever little things at hiding their nests, so, you never know.

A lovely, uplifting poem to read in these troubled times.

Beccy.
