Robin in the green,

camouflaged unseen,

always stands alone,

and in the summer gone.


Through arctic ice and snow,

you’re always there on show,

pitched on a handle’s fork,

whilst the gardener works.


Despite the bitter chill,

your sight brings festive thrill,

iconic feathered friend,

who stays ‘til winters end.


Solitary bird,

your song remains unheard,

hiding in the green,

camouflaged, unseen.
