I opened my door and what did I see,
But a smart little robin there looking at me.
He gave me a wink and a slight little nod,
And strangely enough, it didn’t feel odd!
I invited him in and held the door wide,
And quick as a flash he flew straight inside.
He stayed with me hours just sipping at tea,
Whilst I talked of Christmas he chirruped at me.
Never so happy had I ever been
As chatting with robin in my Christmas dream.
Until when the dark came he chirped he must go,
I guess that my face must have shown I was low.
But on my return to the room warm and pleasant,
I realised the robin had left me a present.
But not one of wrapping, a gift me to you,
No, that crafty fellow just needed the loo!
