The Robin is a Gabriel

The Robin is a Gabriel
In humble circumstances
His Dress denotes him socially,
Of Transport’s Working Classes
He has the punctuality
Of the New England Farmer
The same oblique integrity,
A Vista vastly warmer

A small but sturdy Residence
A self denying Household,
The Guests of Perspicacity
Are all that cross his Threshold
As covert as a Fugitive,
Cajoling Consternation
By Ditties to the Enemy
And Sylvan Punctuation
