Red Red Robin

Red Red Robin 
Messages you doth bring
Flicking hedgerows you do hide
Whispering secrets totherside 

Ebullient flyer 
Settler on telegraph wire 
Dashing betwixt oak tree to gatepost 
scarlet cravat uppermost 

Thank you

Thank you very much Christopher. It was poignant over Christmas with the one year passing of a close relative and the sightings several times of a Red Robin in our garden in England.
