    I'm sitting here on a dreary, rainy day in Massachusetts listening to the robin's daytime song. Eery that this should arrive just now. :-) Christie @ https://wonderingandwondering.wordpress.com/blog/

    Amazingly we have a cold and damp day today too, JoAnn, am happy for the moisture. You've written it exactly right, the robins are still singing!

    We are way over our average moisture for the year here, but I guess everyone's weather is weird these days! So happy for those robins & their cheery message!

    I do hope spring finds her way to you soon, perhaps it is already there, just waiting in the wings!

    I hope so, too! I'm heading outside now with the dog to find out!

    Love the robin's song. Spring will arrive soon! All that rain will bring May flowers . . .

    Yes, we are hopeful, aren't we? It's gorgeous outside right now, so I'm going out to check out the flower beds. Lots of green poking up!

    This is a timely poem after much rain last night and clouds lingering through today, but the robins do remind me to cheeriup!

    I could use that merry cheeriup, especially during this cold and rainy spring! :-)

    A lovely, timely poem and photo. Our trees are budding up, and it's a rebirth of joy in the soul.

    Today feels like spring here at last. I even got a little gardening in! Hoping for sunshine for all tomorrow!

    Robins make me smile. And so does your haiku. Love the last line.
