R.I.P little robin



I was working in the garden for the first time this year
You could feel the coming spring in the air

Suddenly I saw a little robin on the floor between the leaves... dead...
I wonder what has happened. We shall never know...

We burried him in the garden. R.I.P little robin!
This drawing is for you!

Aww I love to see little robins in the garden I haven't seen any for a while this year, I wonder where they all are? So sad to find a dead one, this is a lovely tribute.xx

Nelleke, I remember when I was a little child, with my brother we found pigeons, fallen from its nest, perhaps after a storm, and we tried to give them shelter, and feed them with breadcrumbs soaked in milk. but very few survived, and I remember crying a lot. was painful for a child, but perhaps a necessary experience
even today, to see a dead bird, it's very sad for me.
OK. Your artwork is very beautiful! Now you have my admiration, too, for your delicate sensibilities.
