Random Photo: Robin Red Breast

Little Robin Red breast sat upon a tree,
Up went pussy cat and down went he;
Down came pussy, and away Robin ran;
Says little Robin Red breast, "Catch me if you can".
Little Robin Red breast jumped upon a wall,
Pussy cat jumped after him and almost got a fall;
Little Robin chirped and sang, and what did pussy say?
Pussy cat said, "Meeow!" and Robin jumped away.

~Nursery Rhyme

That cat needs another plan!

Maybe he'd have better luck going after the turkeys, LOL.

I'm not sure I've ever actually heard the whole rhyme before.

We had an old Mother Goose book growing up that was my mother's, so I was familiar with not only this one, but a lot of others that aren't well-known these days. I had it in my possession until my niece was born, at which point I gave it to my sister (and she better still have it!).

Love this! Nice shot. The rhyme is too funny. :-D

Heather said...

Jana: I take it you had never heard this rhyme before? *G*

I tell you, most times robins are extremely camera shy - difficult to photograph - but this particular bird seemed to be posing just for me, let me get close enough to zoom in and did not move until after I'd taken the shot.
