Because there are robins


because there are robins,
harbingers of spring.

because there are robins,
that hush and take wing.

because there are robins,
with gentle peeping eyes.

because there are robins,
the heart gives pause, then sighs.

because there are robins,
with the wind at their backs.

because there are robins,
one forgets what she lacks.

within the pause of day,
robins come to say,
give thanks, give pause, find peace.

go within and see,
all that can, and will one day be.

because there are robins,
because there are robins,
because there are robins,
to see.

  1. the refrain is wonderful. it puts me in a nice trance like a Neruda poem. but maybe keep up the pattern through the poem until the end. then break it with the three line beacause there are robins/…/…”

  2. I think I know how you mean..would you be willing to respond with it reworked into the way you describe? I would like to compare them with your suggestion. If I like your idea better, I just may change it. (grin)
