Song: The Robin.

Samuel Griswold Goodrich 1793 ( Ridgefield) – 1860 ( )



At misty dawn,
At rosy morn,
The Redbreast sings alone:
At twilight dim,
Still, still, his hymn
Hath a sad, and sorrowing tone.
  
Another day, his song is gay,
For a listening bird is near
O ye who sorrow, come borrow, borrow,
A lesson of robin here!
