The Legend of the Christmas Robin ~
Legend tells how a robin,
On the night of the first noel
Braved the frosty winter night
So the baby might sleep well.
Throughout the night, the small grey
Did flutter for their worth
And fanned the fire that warmed the
His first night here on Earth.
In the heat of stirring the lonely
The shepherds have it said
The Robin wears with honor
A breast of Christmas Red.©
