THE ROBIN'S RAIN SONG
(By Mary Emma Allen (c)2002 - me.allen@juno.com)

"That robin's song means rain," I remarked.

My family looked at me and wondered about Mom communicating with the birds.

"Yes," I said. "When the robins sang like that, Grandma always told us it meant rain was coming."

They then wondered about my mother and me. "And she was usually right," I insisted.

Later in the day it rained! A gentle spring storm outside my kitchen door.

It's amazes me how memories from childhood pop, unannounced, into our minds, triggered by a word, a sound, a song, a picture. I hadn't thought about the robin's rain song for awhile. However, as I sat at my computer and heard the robins singing, Mother's words came to mind.

I also realize how much we absorb in childhood that later influences our lives. My memories, I've discovered, continue to play a role in my thoughts and writing. Mother, even though she's gone, leaves a legacy in memory that I share with my daughter and grandchildren.
