Spring Inquisition

Who told poor Robin that Spring had sprung?
What Judas could have sent her to this place
where waters are sure to freeze again? And,
when she learns there are no worms, no wonder
why her face will show as red as her breast.

This song/vid just makes me laugh…

  1. We have the poor things here as well – I have thought of buying some red wigglers in case of a re-freeze but these robins seem so fat that I think they have a private supply somewhere…

    (It wouldn’t surprise me after seeing the tree rat on my widow sill this morning trying to steal the seed balls I made for my cardinals and chickadees…I KNEW the birds could not have been eating that much by themselves!)


  2. iambic pentameter! haven’t heard that term since a forever ago!
    visiting your page just reminds me of
    how much i’ve forgotten and how much i still want to learn.

    great post! (Lawrence Welk? laughing along with you!)

    • well – this was the first poem I ever wrote were I consciously tried to use iambic pentameter. I’m learning all kinds of new things in this class… some things I’ve done for years but never knew the terms for them… and some are brand spanking new to me.
      Glad you got a smile from the vid too. =)

  3. Powerful! How you weave your words never cease to amaze me.

  4. This is wonderful, Samantha. I would love to have you link it to my Monday Morning Writing Prompt if you like. It’s just what’s happening in much of the world and you captured it in so few words.

  7. Thanks so much for taking time to stop by. I appreciate the nice comment :) hugs!

  8. Got the bird feeders out but the squirrels are getting fat. The cardinals are too skinny but maybe one of the squirrels will pop.

    • LOL Squirrels gotta eat too…. we have some woods behind us… and get all kinds of creatures in our yard…. For a while, raccoon was breaking into our garage and ripping into our dry dog food bag… til we put it in a tin… and, then, I caught him trying to open that… lol… he was a fat little fellow… so, I didn’t feel too sorry for him! =) Thanks for the read, Dan.
