Where the Robins sing..

If I can stop one heart from breaking I shall not live invain-If I can ease one life the aching, or cool the pain ,or help one poor fainting Robin unto his nest I shall not live invain...

Emily Dickinson.

Painting Thomas Hovenden.

Beautiful sentiments from Emily and beautiful music chosen by the Dutchess!

I don't think I have ever come across a fainting robin, have you? I don't know what I would do with one if I did. Our vet will not accept wild birds because of bird flu, maybe keeping it warm would do the trick?

It is a very Victorian image isn't it, poor little soul.

What a beautiful poem about charity and love. A perfect analogy about OUR call to be loving. Thank you! Cathy
