Two Robins

There’s ragged robin flowering in the orchard
And a sleek, fat robin singing overhead;
At his strident instigation
But more by my own inclination,
I spare the flowers from the mower’s blade.

Thanks for the "Two Robins". I would have saved the flowers too.

Iwould definitely save ragged robin too, a lovely flower and not common either. I like the juxtaposition of the two robins.

Thanks. Both the flower and the bird live in the orchard so it seemed appropriate to link them together.
