One Fainting Robin

 The world sits heavily on our small shoulders, so when Emily Dickinson speaks and suggests that we needn’t take on the full burden, it’s a nice thought to consider. So in a change of venue, here’s the score to the poem I composed, with an additional verse of my own. 

                            If I can help one heart from breaking,

                                I shall not live in vain. 

                                If I can ease one life the aching

                                Or cool one pain.

                                Or help one fainting robin

                                Unto its nest again,

                                I shall not live in vain,

                                I shall not live in vain.
