Swampyville's - "I heard the Robin sing!
Retired

Take Me To Post Comment Form

From the Swampyville Gazette!

Martin Luther King Jr. Day!

I Heard the Robin Sing!
by Optimistic Oriole!

When I was the innocent one,
One morning in early spring;
No thought of true reason,
I heard the Robin sing;

He sang his sweet song of life,
Of hope, faith, and charity;
He sang of his everlasting wish,
For a World in perfect harmony;

He sang his precious song,
For conflict to never start;
Then came the makers of hate,
And tore all his dreams apart;

Like a forgotten soul,
Forlorn in a castle keep;
In the darkness of night,
I heard the Robin weep;

We did not get there with you,
But, you paved the way with care;
One day we will cross that Mountain,
And find you abiding there;
