Red Breasted Robin

Embedded image from another site
The day our Lord was slain and hung on a cross
A little grayish brown bird flying seemed to be lost
He flew and flew around Jesus head
Appearing to know of our Lord’s distress

What could he do to help relieve Jesus’ pain
He was just little but wanted to help just the same
He noticed a thorn sticking into his head
The blood was flowing down from it crimson red

He fluttered around Jesus’s head trying to pull
That thorn from his head to stop the blood flow
He beat his wings and worked very hard
To attempt to pull out that very sharp shard

He finally worked it loose and dropped it to the ground
Giving Him some relief from the painful thorny crown
From helping Jesus his breast was crimson red
From His blood dripping down from His head

From that day forth the little bird’s breast
Was stained permanently crimson red
For God blessed him for helping that day
The Red Breasted Robin became his name

Thank you Syed Saied. I'm honored that you liked it. I love Legends stories and have based a few of my poems around them such as: The Dragon Fly and Dream Catcher.

Published in the April 2020 Moonlighter and next Friday is Good Friday! Easter is next Sunday but here we will be celebrating Easter differently - more emphasize will be on our Lord and Savior then on the Easter Bunny and baskets as it should be. Can't help thinking another way to get our attention to turn to Him in prayer as possibly in the End Times. Like our last chance.

Your very best to date by far. This creative fictitious piece of work is not only outstanding on a creativity level, but just as good in the positioning of same-line word rhymes, word count, and overall readability that flows like the blood of Christ mentioned so artistically. A highly unique piece,... that only one that is One with The Spirit could write. Unsure how I missed this one first time around, but happy to see it now......we all get inspiration from somewhere, whichever good source it is, it matters not. Just as long as the source is good......but I don't need to tell you anything you don't already know. purple heart

Hi, godsprincess,
He was just little but wanted to help just the same
Sometimes, it's the little things and little ones that make all the difference. Here's hoping that the lesson of doing the good that one can (no matter how small) be learned before our time runs out. Thank you for sharing the meaning found in your verse. May blessings of the season be upon you and everyone.

Thank you Christian - it based on an Easter Legend for children I found on line and it inspired me to write this.

Kathy,....Please forgive my intrusion while I directly address this Mentally-disturbed intruder that has pathetically attempted a back-handed, yet unfactual set of derogatory trashpile assembly of words that are obviously based upon jealously and a lack of properly needed Psychotherapy. The Author of this poem is no thief, nor is she a liar.....She is one of the kindest, most respectable lovers of truth and righteousness that has ever graced the face of this corner. I highly suggest you find a different hobby to pass the time of your life that lacks any purpose that you have consistently demonstrated. Do not challenge me in any way. I will be the first to rush to the defense of those that I love. There have been many here over the years that foolishly attempted to challenge my loyalty to those I have come to love and admire.........They soon realized their mistake. This artistic assembly of poetic thoughts, emotions and words supersede anything that you will ever be capable of, unless you learn some humilty, educate yourself to at least some degree, and most-importantly, seek the unquestionable needed treatment that you truly do need. Kathy, you may delete without even the slightest degree of disappointment on my side if you feel it appropriate to do so. purple heart

Your fine Christian my white knight. But don't get so upset for me please. Sometimes there are people who just don't deserve my time and attention. God knows my heart and knows me and He knows other people's hearts and minds. I figure He will take care of the problem. Just saying.....

Thank you Joy - it was such a sweet children's story written several years ago in London and I felt it deserved a poem. As far as stealing stories - it was about our Lord and Savior. His story is throughout the whole world so I guess the whole world is stealing His story.

Thanks for reading Joy and your lovely comment!

Thank you Chris - I'm glad you liked it. As fellow Christians it is one of the 2 most important days of the year. My Pastor says you can't have Easter without Christmas and you can't have Christmas without Easter. However, also she likes the song "Every Morning is Easter Morning From Now On"!! So every day technically is Easter Day!!

K....There is simply no room in my heart to be upset over anything other than my own actions. I think my response was written in less than a minute out of pure emotion. God does know your heart and mind. He is no slouch when it comes to taking care of problems.......Lovely poem.
