LOOK AHEAD … to tomorrow, next week, next month, on our main calendar page.


  1. To The First Robin

    WELCOME, welcome, little stranger,
    Fear no harm, and fear no danger;
    We are glad to see you here,
    For you sing “Sweet Spring is near.”

    Now the white snow melts away;
    Now the flowers blossom gay:
    Come dear bird and build your nest,
    For we love our robin best.

    Louisa May Alcott

  4. Thank you, sc, for sharing this lovely little poem, which I’d never known before.
    Robins are my favorite songbird, I love them so much. :)
