A beautiful robin catches a worm for supper on an early summer evening in late June at Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania.

“Who made the flowers to bloom in the spring
Who made the song for the robins to sing
And who hung the moon in the starry sky
Somebody bigger than you and I ...”
~ “Somebody Bigger Than You and I”
~ written by Johnny Lange, Hy Heath & Sonny Burke
~ recorded by the great Elvis Presley
I spotted this sweet robin fledgling in the grass on an early June evening in Lehigh Parkway, Allentown, Pennsylvania, reminding me of the line in my most favorite Gospel hymn, the beautiful “Somebody Bigger Than You and I,” recorded by the great Elvis Presley in 1967.
Someday this little fledgling will sing the song God made for the robins to sing … and sing beautifully!

“It’s spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you’ve got it, you want – oh you don’t quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!”
~ Mark Twain
The rays of a waning winter sunset
brush this sweet robin perched atop
the highest branch of a tree at
Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania
as it dreams of the nearby spring
just around the corner.
