Come Sit By Me A While:Our Christmas Robin Redbreast.
How wonderful to have you all visiting once again and this today I share My Little Robin Redbreast with you.
I can remember feeling so upset when I learnt that the Robin is a solitary bird and will kill another for his food.
Have you ever seen two or more Robins together?
I never have done so;so many sparrows;tits and many other birds come visiting our bird table in great numbers.
Because our Robin is always connected with beautiful Christmas scenes I thought that they were so loving and caring.
Then after thinking for a while I realised that this doesn't make them any less beautiful!!
Oh no this is simply the magic of Mother Nature's work.Her instincts she has shared wisely and how mundane would it be if all us humans were clones of each other!!!
It just wouldn't work would it ??
I feed my birds daily with a variety of seeds and also a premium mix of dried meal-worms and assorted bugs .The Robin devoures the dried meal-worms and bugs quicker than any other bird!!
I have never seen one on my feeders but they stand for ages enjoying the dried mixtures in a planter.
This hub is not all about the habits of a Robin but is about how magical they do make each and every Christmas.
Right then, cups of hot tea and coffee plus biscuits and Mince Pies;if someone can bring them outside ;today is so mild and I love sitting out here as you also do I know. I was going to invite you all over yesterday but didn't it pour down all day ???Not a day to sit out here.
Right are we all seated comfortably. Right I will start!!
Known as Redbreast
A cute sweet character
Chirps in a fashion so dainty
I thank Mother nature for this moment
To cherish today forever
My heart sings happily
Oh how I love
On a Christmas card
With a background of snow scenes
Sits Robin Redbreast.
Oh how sweetly
Brings love and hope
I treasure daily
Never to cease.
Redbreast full of hope
Each daily visit
Daring to move a little closer
Branches sprinkled with snow
Rich in Mother nature's charm
Each day brings joy
And my heart sings
Soulful and festive
Three cheers for Robin Redbreast.
A solitary soul
watches my movements
willing me on.....................
Robin Redbreast sits on his own
from his high branch
Spotting his treats
Sweet little bird
with a chest so red........
a magical aura
a gift of true love........
A Christmas motto
Each branch tip
pure white snow................
small and sweet
follow the trail
flight so high
so sweet so longed for..................
Thank you oh sweet
soft beats but so awesome
Warding off foes
a solitary stance.
For what we strongly believe in
we must stand up
determination brimming over..........................
We must stand up
make ourselves heard.................
Mother Nature's instincts so powerful
of each night.
Little stars shine
Feeders full snowflakes falling
we blow a whisper
emotions almost innocent..................
In true belief
this has to be pure
this has to share
from my heart
to you all............
A love to shine
a message so clear
Oh Robin Redbreast
Snow white beauty
From that sweet baby
I am happy.
Each Christmas time I treasure
Safe in my heart
Each fresh image oh so sweet
Right from the start.
