VI. The Robin Is the One

VI.

The robin is the one
Bird I can’t stand
Because its song
Sounds so bland.

The robin is the one
That trills at noon
Repetitively,—
God-awful tune.

The robin is the one
That when she plops
Her nest with eggs,—
Ah, then music stops!

 

The nicer version. Cf. “I dreaded that first robin so,” of which I have also discovered an early draft, to be published in the future. Image credit: American Robin by Dakota Lynch.
