The Robin In The Tree
“There was a Robin in a tree who spoke to me one day
Where are you going he asked and what will you see
Just a walk in the park I replied, just my dog and me
The Robin asked a beautiful day do you not agree?
Yes I said, but there are clouds drawing near do you not see?
The Robin tilted his head and looked to the sky
I see the clouds he said, but I think the rain will pass us by
Thank you friend Robin I said with a smile
Would you like to come with us and chat for a while?
No said the Robin, I must be off
But please come by again when next you take a walk
As the Robin flew away my dog looked at me and said
If he ever lands on the ground I will chase him all around
But why said I, he has but to fly
Smiling my dog shook his head and said why ask why?”
