Mr. Robin, he came and went.
I don’t know how his time was spent.
He would be here and then was not.
He just did not stay in one spot!
But he did watch and try to see
When someone was so close…like me!
He looked left, and then to the right,
Was always checking with his sight.
The Mrs. , too, first left, then right…
Always checking with her keen sight.
Then the Mrs. would fly away.
She left at different times each day.
I always watched the nest for her.
No reason that there’d be a stir…
Oh! Wait! What’s that? Something did move!
But…’twas nothing I could prove.
But…wait! I see it! I do see!
But…I don’t know what it could be!
And then I saw a fuzzy head!
It popped up from its nest-y bed!
A little Bird! A little Bird!
And then a small wee sound I heard!
It was a cheep!…Another cheep!
And then another head did peep.
And then another…then one more!
Oh my goodness! There must be four!
Oh! I’m so tired! I must sleep.
But all I hear is cheep, cheep, cheep!
Four little birds! They’re all brand new!
All from God’s Hand, like me and you!
I hope I hear you read out loud!
You know that I would be so proud!
I’m glad that we could read today.
God bless you is what I do say! (See Footnote #15)
