Why the robin stopped singing

She opened the blind.
She saw the light.
She threw open the window.
She let in the New Year.
It was really a breeze.

The clouds paced along
As if to a pressing
Engagement somewhere.
The clock on the church
Said a minute to twelve.

In the candleberry tree
The robin stopped singing.
