European Robin - Erithacus rubecula

European Robin – Erithacus rubecula (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Little fat robin on a post,
puffed out against the sun,
you are the one we love the most,
tiddly-i tiddly-i-ti-tum.
Strip away the
stereotype
and what do you find left?
A tiny bird,
whose voice is heard,
with a brilliant
orange-red chest.

  1. 😀 I love our robins ‘the most’ too. Of course they aren’t European, but … a robin is a robin? 😉 I posted a hilarious pic of a mama robin on my site in the ‘Gallery’. (It needs a cleaver caption.)
    Anyhow, love the feeling of this poem, Polly. 😀

    • Ah-ha! Your robins are just as beautiful, Ann, they’re bigger! I spent ages watching them in Central Park last year … dear little creatures. Looks like I’ve missed some posts from you – I shall investigate later 🙂 x
