robins arrive home

spring lively across the lawn

song scolds the fresh snow

I can just hear the scolding song of the robin-- nice image. Your watercolor is very nice.

Constance said...

Pam - thanks. the robins were quite vocal in their protest. Wasn't my fault it snowed, but they acted like it was!

I like your Rockin' Girl Blogger icon! When I got it, it had been changed to the Rockin' Wench Blogger. *grin*

Anyway, this is a lovely haiku. And so true, too; I know that scolding of the snow. And I usually agree with it!

Constance said...

Susan - I modified the icon a bit to suit me. Dangers of having graphics editing software. :)
The robins here were complaining loudly about the snow one day. They should have stayed south another month if they didn't like it!
