Dear Robin - Poem by Anthony Di'anno

Bright eyed, soft feathered,
loved beyond limited word.

My heart strings are tethered,
to you beautiful bird.

A ring perched on my finger,
you hold more than I know.

The moment doth linger,
in warm breasted glow.

Inches apart,
flooded within.

How you light up my heart,
when you cheerfully sing.

Bright eyed soft feathered,
loved beyond limited life.

My heartstrings are tethered,
to you beautiful wife.


Poet's Notes about The Poem

One day a robin perched on my finger.
His feet reminded me of a wedding ring.

    I love birds with a passion, both wild and domesticated. I haven't studied birds scientifically. I'm no ornithologist, not even an informed bird watcher. I have a poet's perception of birds. For the past 40+ I have always had a canary, and cultivated a close rapport with that very tiny creature. TWEEL'S PARTING SONG at my Poetry Site is a homage to one of them. My present canary has brown/black feathers he's really striking. I named him TRISTRAM afterTristram Shandy, the 18th novel by Laurence Sterne, a unique, eccentric book and one of my favorites. Can you believe it? I took up all the space and cannot comment on the robin anymore. My canaries crowded him out! (Report) Reply

    If I am correct this is a great metaphor. The last lines lead me to believe so. My heartstrings are tethered to you beautiful wife. (Report) Reply
