A Tale Of Friendship And Sharing

When my children were growing up, I wrote them poetry to teach them lessons of love and kindness. This is a poem about sharing and how important it is to open your heart to others less fortunate than you.

The Robin And The Crow

Published by Family Friend Poems May 2013 with permission of the Author.

A robin and a crow were perched upon a fence,
an unlikely combination, but they seemed to be good friends.
Standing in the mid-day sun each on a separate picket,
basking in its rays while staring at a cricket.
The crow looked very hungry, the robin seemed content,
so he flapped his shiny wings and to the ground he went.
The cricket saw him coming and jumped away in a flash,
searching for some camouflage in an open field of grass.
The crow was disappointed to get outsmarted once again,
so he flew back to his perch and asked his feathered friend,
"Have you had your dinner, tell me would you mind?
I wondered if you'd share with me, could you be so kind?"
The robin fanned his wings and said, "Come, follow me."
To his nest they flew at the top of an old oak tree.
Together they shared a feast the robin caught that day,
then they fell asleep passing the time away.
There's a lesson to be learned from the robin and the crow,
and carry this knowledge with you wherever you may go.
Friendship is a special thing; it's always nice to share.
It shows the good inside of you so people know you care.



I am from a family of writers. My grandfather was a published poet. He taught me to write as a young girl. He opened up the world of poetry to me. What a sweet release it is to take those thoughts from the secret part of your soul and put them in verse. My hope is that my poems inspire others and reach them in a very special way.
