Springtime and Robin is Singing Again


Springtime and Robin is singing again,
oh, how sweetly the sound awakens me.
It comforts me to hear his joyful refrain
as he sits by my window in the tree

Robin sings so joyfully, he must be
so happy out there feeling misty rain
which had started early this very morn,
and to know many new birds have been born.

Baby birds adding new life to my yard
is a wonderful thing for me to know,
after the long winter, which was so hard,
I am ready for Robin’s joyful songs.

Robin, you will make a pretty postcard
for me to send to friends as a nice hello.
Oh! Such a wonderful and cheerful thing
for friends to see your image when you sing.

Now I hurry through my morning routine
so to get outside and plant new flowers,
it makes me cheerful to hear the birds sing
while I plant and hope for spring showers.

This will surely be a wonderful spring
to enjoy my yard and relax in my bower.
Bright petunias in many hanging pots
will bring hummingbirds for me to watch.

Long I have waited to again see you,
in my Crabtree with blossoms of snow white
which send me a heavenly fragrance through
my window when I awake from a long night.

Fluffy white clouds today in sky so blue,
will make a gorgeous sunset at twilight
when mother robin tucks her babies in.
As the night comes on, sleep nearby, Robin.


My sonnet portrays the robin in early spring and welcomes him back after a long winter. However, American Robins are year-round residents throughout Nevada. I live in northern Nevada and feel fortunate to see robins all winter, even in the snow. Since I do not go outside during the cold months unless it is necessary, I always welcome robin when I welcome the spring, for it is then I am more aware of the sweet morning greetings of the robins in the tree near my bedroom window.

I hope you enjoyed my sonnet about Robin. Thank you for reading.

I am an author on TCE and write mainly in poetry and short stories. I have always liked to write. It is important to me that writing comes from my heart and soul. When writing poetry, if I do not feel a spiritual connection to what I am writing on, I will discard it and go on to something I can connect with on a spiritual level. I live in the moment, I write from the past or beyond the veil. When writing fiction I go with whatever inspires me at the moment - it could be funny, sorrowful, romantic or sometimes done with the use of colloquial language from mountain folk or other cultural regions. I began writing content online in 2007, starting with BellaOnline - A Voice For Women, where I was the Native American Editor, Folklore & Mythology Editor, and the Appalachian Editor. I also wrote articles for The Examiner, Daily Two Cents, and Yahoo. I am currently an author on HubPages. Most of what I write takes a lot of research and I love it. Even if it is a fictional story, I will research for accuracy in whatever it takes to make my characters, their era, their location, etc. become realistic to the reader. I hope you enjoy my works. Thank you for visiting.

    Really enjoyed this writing, Phyllis. It is so awesome when the Robin is singing again! That first songbird after a long winter is definitely a joyful moment. I am glad that you captured that moment throughout this writing. It is always great to hear the birds singing after the battle of the day to day dreary winter. It tells me that we made it and can get ready for a new Spring. Excellent!
