Robin on a Redwood Fence

Red-breasted robin on  a redwood fence!
I see you through my window.
I lift up my little dog
so she can see you, too.

You look directly back at us,
a piece of yellow grass in your beak,
then hop along the fence posts
until you disappear beyond

our line of vision
to build a nest we cannot see.
