Legend of the Birds

Stephanie ventures into new creative territory with this composition. In this poem, a passerby on a winter evening notices the statue of a robin and wonders why it is there, who made the carving, and why children are fascinated by it. Surprisingly, the stone bird answers, but only in riddles. It becomes apparent that it is not the spirit of the living bird, not of a human artisan, but of the great Creator who can give life to stone.
