Little Robin Redbreast


Hydra spotted this cheery fellow outside the living room window today.  We don’t often see Robins up here. Always a sign of spring back home in Indiana.

Of course the nursery rhyme came to mind.


Little Robin Redbreast

By Anonymous

Little Robin Redbreast
    Sat upon a tree;
Up went Pussy-cat,
    Down went he.
Down came Pussy-cat,
    And away Robin ran;
Says little Robin Redbreast
    “Catch me if you can.”
Little Robin Redbreast
    Hopped upon a wall;
Pussy-cat jumped after him,
    And almost got a fall.
Little Robin chirped and sang,
    And what did Pussy say?
Pussy-cat said “Mew,”
    and Robin flew away.
