Waiting for the robin to sing (poem)

20 May

Nature’s herald of dawn

Waiting for the robin to sing

Waiting for the robin to sing,
Announcing we have a new day.
With all the promise it can bring,
As the night is fading away.

The robin’s song breaks through the air,
Long before we can see the sun.
It knows that the new dawn is there,
That another day has begun.

Other birds hear his early call,
Their voices join in his dawn song.
The dawn chorus is sung by all,
As the robin sings out so strong.

Slowly the sky lightens the night,
Announcing that dawn’s almost here.
The sun will soon come into sight,
The robin sings out loud and clear.

Dawns herald has been clearly heard,
Another day on earth has begun.
Dawn started by one single bird,
The robin’s song greets the new sun.
