“There Came to My Window”

There came to my window one morning in spring
A sweet little robin, who came there to sing;
The song that it sang, it was prettier far,
Than any I heard on a flute or guitar.


She raised her light wings to fly far a way
Then resting a moment, seemed sweetly to say:
“Happy, how happy, this world seems to be
Up, up little girl, and be happy with me.”
