Robin egg blue

Up high in a tree

in a cosy twig nest

four little eggs

sleep where they are best

hidden away from their avian foes

protected from wind, the rain and the snows

mum and dad watching from a branch at height

keeping an eye on the eggs that are bright

Much like their cousins, whose shells are white

they sleep both at day, and mostly at night

till the time comes to spread their wings

and they taste the goodies their mum and dad brings

      Many thanks for reading. The blue eggs threw me one serious curveball, till I remembered I was looking at the American Robin and not the British Robin Redbreast – which lays slightly whiter eggs! 🙂 glad you enjoyed the read.
