Robin's Secret


We have a secret, just we three.
The robin and I and the sweet cherry tree:
The bird told the tree, and the tree told me,
And nobody knows it but just us three.

But of course the robin knows it best,
Because it built the, I shan't tell the rest;
And laid the four little, somethings, in it-
I am afraid I shall tell it every minute.

But if the tree and the robin don't peep,
I'll try my best the secret to keep;
Though I know when the little birds fly about,
Then the whole secret will be out.

Wow, haven't read that poem in a while! It brought back many memories... of me learning it and of hearing lots of other kids learn it on the other side of the room. =) It's a great one for spring. Have a great day!

Oh my goodness! It brought back memories for me too! I can still here Angie & Robin and half the other kids saying that poem so loud each morning for class. What a funny little feeling reading that gave me :)
