Q16: A Robin in the Lambing Shed


There’s a pearled song
waiting at the end
of its willow reed.

Up there is a robin
in the rafters
of the lambing shed.

  3. I agree with debi. It’s one of those little moments that makes you go “ah!” that my poetry lecturer used to talk about – like the cathedral when you cut open an orange.
