Skipping Robin calmly playing
Blind or unaware
On the grass without a care

Softly swaying willow; Bending
down he grabs his feast
The softest prize between his beaks
Why’s it wrong? How could he know?
But it’s still too much to let him go

Now the wind is falling,
From the branches calling
As an only warning
Cutting through the morning
Up above him leering
Though he still can’t hear him
It’s no surprise when
The arrow strikes him in the eye
Resounding with a muted cry

His body falls down crashing
The scene before him flashing
Still he can’t imagine
How they let this happen
And as he comes down near him
Sparrow can see him bleeding
There will be no arrest
He drops his knee onto his chest
His blood the color of his breast
His dying song: What have you done?
Your arrow took another one
