the annual robin count

#16 is sunning herself in the yard
on the lawn between two trees
seeming quite contented
no worm pulling
no fast meandering across the grass
just there
after many minutes
still
still
still
does she know it's unusually warm for april?
has she heard the news of the world?
maybe
but why spoil a bright spring day
with too many thoughts of tomorrow
