Rockin' Robin Thirty Paintings In Thirty Days Day Eleven by Norma Wilson

Rockin' Robin


© Norma Wilson, original oil on canvas 6" by 6


I simply love the English Robin.  Painting these sweet birds makes my heart happy.  Just found a poem that I thought you might enjoy....

Robin's Song

Robins sang in England,
Frost or rain or snow,
All the long December days
Endless years ago.

Robins sang in England
Before the Legions came,
Before our English fields were tilled
Or England was a name.

Robins sang in England
When forests dark and wild
Stretched across from sea to sea
And Jesus was a child.

Listen! in the frosty dawn
From his leafless bough
The same brave song he ever sang
A robin's singing now.
