Wake Up Song.

I am awakened from my slumber

By a song of such beauty,

I lay in the dark listening to the sound

Pervading my mind,

Pervading my soul,

As the robin sings to me.

A chorus joins,

And the robins soprano voice

Is joined by the altos of the blackbirds.

They slowly disappear

But the robins solo voice is still there

Singing to me,

Showing me that life is good,

And is always worth celebrating

Celebrating with song.

    How beautiful to hear the robin’s rich caroling early in the morning! The clip is incredible! I enjoyed it very much! Your day has begun with a song! May it be so all day long!

      Thank you Laura, the robin is the first bird you hear in the morning and the last bird you hear at night.

      Lovely birds - mind you they are a bit promiscuous - perhaps that's why he was singing. great poem for the beginning of the day.

      • Lorna

        I have to ask - how do you know this? Are you a peeping tom?

        • Michael Edwards

          No Lorna, I'm a peeking duck - there was a book published many years ago called The Life Of The Robin by David Lack which is still the definitive study of their behaviour. One interesting fact I recall is that they are not as territorial as people think. If you see a robin regularly in the garden there is every chance that it is not the same bird and could, in fact, be several of them. I'm full of useless information.

          How adorable! Your robins are a cuter, perkier version of ours (who are NOT showing up)............

              Wish it could read this
              You returned the compliment the robin gave

              • Goldfinch60
