Robin Speaks.

         Robin Speaks.





Across morning fields,
Of amber grain,
I heard your message,
Saw what you brought.
Herald of the message,
You, what a wonder you are.
Brightness in a sullen world,
Promise under broken snow,
You will yet reveal,
Something coming to set us,
Free.
On seasons rolling in and out,
I hear your song,
A shrill embracing shout.
Friend of mine,
Revealing the truth to be,
A world of fairness,
Yet to see.

The world of men,
On steely gaze,
Eyes of china blue,
Hate and war their quest,
Something new arrives,
To give us real zest.
This announcement you bring,
Times changing, lands surrender,
A beat of love,
Irrelevant of sex or gender,
Hope of light and peace for all,
Even though,
You're so very small.
Colours changing you,
Before the message leaves,
Bring sunshine, room to breath,
A place where no-one grieves,
Your loving song sees.

How has it become,
A place where hate ruled?
You and I,
We are not fooled,
So let our voices rise,
Share love and peace,
Upon the bluest skies,
Open hearts,
Bring tear to open eyes.
Friend, with ruddy breast,
You show me how,
To be all that's best,
And in you I trust.
Time, found enough to speak,
The love you bring,
Worthy to be spread abroad,
A message of loving kindness
Heard.
