The robins return

Dear Editor:


My husband, Philip R. Leonard, who is now deceased, wrote this poem. It would cheer me up and hopefully others if you would print this.


Welcome Back

Welcome back red-breasted friend.

I’ve thought about you now and then.

How you pulled worms out of my lawn.

The snow piled high while you were gone.

It seemed so long, you were away,

But now you’re back to cheer my day.

You robins always bring me cheer.

You bring the sun and warmth back here.

Come back as often as you can,

And welcome back red-breasted friend.


Anne Leonard
