Main Poetry Index Christmas Poems

A robin sat upon a branch

    And gave a little sigh.

The ground below was frozen hard

    And snow came from the sky.


“Christmas cheer?  No, not for me!

     It really is a shame!” -

But then he heard the kitchen door

    And out the children came.


“Happy Christmas, Robin dear:

    Here’s something nice and sweet,”

And on the bird table they put

    A special robin treat:


Oh!  Lots of oats and dried mealworms -

    And apple pieces too;

Some fat balls, raisins, sunflower hearts -

    And now this robin knew


That the children, in the winter cold,

    Thought of their friends, the birds,

And 'happy Christmas' really meant

    Much more than just two words.
