i saw a robin today

i saw a robin today;
felt the warmth of
early spring sunshine.

lake miriam, frozen;
bitter cold wind
still nipping, biting.

my avian friend
flitted, as though
dancing, limb to limb;

crooning vernal songs
of protest, promise;
hope and renewal.

i saw a robin today;
portent of the
reawakened mother.
