             Robins Fly  Away!


Guess what I saw in my back yard this morning, in about six inches of snow?

Robins! Yep! Red breasted robins! About eight of them... no coats or ear muffs!

They must have taken a wrong turn somewhere and ended up here, about a month early!


I don’t know what they will eat, as fishing worms and insects make up their regular diet.

I put out some bread crumbs for them, but I doubt if they will eat it.

I thought maybe spring had come early, but no luck on that, it’s supposed to snow

again today!


My dear little red breasted friends, I hope you’ve brought your lunch as the ground is

 frozen solid, there will be no worms today!


If, I were you I’d take flight and wing my way south, where the sun shines all the time and

the fishing worms are fat and sublime! 

I wouldn’t come back here until summertime!


By the way, for your information, it’s still February...not May!  

So, bye, bye, shoo! fly away before you freeze your tail feathers off,

on this cold winter’s day!
