From My Window

Written by: Albert Ahearn

A robin perched upon a branch outside my living room window His lighthearted disposition roused within me a reverie. With eyes closed firmly I conjured a heretofore different scene: A naked limb laden with snow and a cold loneliness prevailed gazing through a closed, frosted paneā€¦ My eyes opened, the thrush was gone no trace vestige of abstract snow though out of sight his song was heard Cheerio, Cheeriup, tut tut !! from outside my open window.
