Treasure Island

Anthony Di'anno

(North Yorkshire)

Dear Robin


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.

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

    Birds are so lovely and a Robin is so cute! It coming and perching on your finger must have been a thrilling experience! SO your heart strings are tethered to the feathered dame! Beware of the jealousy of your wife! A lovely write! (Report) Reply

    This is really beautiful. Dripping with what a poem should be. Not overdone, this poem is elegant in it's simplicity. (Report) Reply

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
