Crimson breasted
Perching on a gate
Robin red breast
Looking for a mate
A hardy suitor
Courting and wooing
Proudly displaying
In ritual pursuing
Trying to impress
To attract a wife
So in the spring
There’d be new life
And for his efforts
Amidst winter hard
He gets to appear
On a Christmas card

About the Poem

At Christmas, robins are almost ubiquitous, popping up on cards, wrapping paper and as Christmas tree decorations, but a lucky few have a real robin living in their garden.
