Kids poem: the robin's song

Discussion in 'Quotes & Poems' started by Yours, May 13, 2016.

  1. Hark ! it is the robin's song
    Coming through the flowery trees !
    Sweetly does it float along
    Hither, on the balmy breeze.

    O, that I could understand
    Once, the meaning of the words
    Warbled forth so quick, to go
    To the music of the birds !

    If I had him in my hand,
    Holding down his glossy wings,
    Could I better understand
    What it is the robin sings ?

    Were his tender downy *phcorner*
    Pressing, warm, upon my palm,
    Could I make it feel at rest ?
    Would he then be tame and calm ?

    No, upon his native bough
    He is happy, light and free :
    There, to Heaven he carols now
    Praises for his liberty !

    Captive, he would only make
    Signs of anguish- -sounds of grief,
    Till his little heart would break,
    Mourning panting for relief.

    He who formed the feathered lyre,
    Hath the light, unfettered wings
    Made to fan the latent fire
    Kindled in the hidden strings.

    Whilst he holds it high in air,
    To his touch it quick replies ;
    But if mortal fingers bëâr
    On its chords, the music dies !
