This morning, my oldest sent an e-mail to everyone on his e-mail list announcing that he had seen the first robin of the season.
He was so excited.
This afternoon, we went for a walk, and he spotted two more.
Spring is on its way! If I had had my camera I would have tried to capture the moment. However, I didn't. (When will I learn?!)
Today's poem is dedicated to my oldest, robin-spotting son, Nathaniel.

Here is a house, dear robin.
The floors and walls are strong.
It's safe from wind
and snug from rain
and yours for just a song.
(I just have to note here, that I am at the library. An unexpected trip to participate in a program my handy-dandy iPhone reminded me of one hour before it started. I found this poem in a poetry book on the shelf in the children's section. I tell you this because I never thought I would look for a poem at the library. I'm learning!)
Poetry Wednesday - there are some great selections this week. It's worth following the link, trust me.
