One of my favourite birds is the Robin Redbreast I see him on my lawn with his bright scarlet chest A territorial bird, he’ll guard his piece of the land If another bird ventures in then he will take a stand When I’m digging my border, he will perch in a shrub fly near to my spade then eat a small weevil or grub He is ever so friendly, he visits me every day I’m so thrilled this little Robin is here to stay Writing Challenge, October 2019 - Bird - Poetry Contest Sponsored by Dear Heart -Wiishkobe Ode 10/15/19
