To a Robin [Oil on Canvas 16×20 Inch] © Omay Lee 2021

Melodious bird upon the bough,
Tell me the secret of thy glee;
With tears at heart and clouded brow,
I linger, listening to thee.
I pause, bewildered at thy soul,
Which pours itself in strains so high
Upon this world of doom and dole;
Where sorrows live and raptures die
~ William Francis Barnard
