For seven centuries this little robin has been singing his heart out from the pages of the magnificent Macclesfield Psalter.

To all my faithful blogging friends and readers;  May your robins be singing for you wherever you are.

Anna... in a word.... Ditto :)
Darla.. thank you so much for your comment. I do miss the little robins, especially in the garden.. but then all I have to do here in Florida is step outside and watch the glorious red cardinals.. so beautiful!

I certainly haven't been very faithful (and I have no idea why not!), but this was a lovely rendition. Thank you for the lovely thought, and I would wish the same for you throughout 2010. :-)
