To the Robin
by James W. Whilt (nr 26)
Dear little, sweet little robin
Dressed in nice grey coat
With your warm red sweater about you
Drawn close around your throat.
With your bright pink stockings,
That you keep so clean;
Don’t you ever stain them
In the grass so green?
Eyes so dark and beautiful,
Bright as they can be,
Can spy a worm upon the ground,
And you high in a tree.
