It was May in Iowa and snow was still piled up everywhere. My sister looked out of her kitchen window and was surprised to see tree branches full of robins. She snapped a picture and posted it on Facebook. Even though we thought spring would never come, the robins promised it would. My sister, LouAnn Nelson-Longnecker, kindly gave me permission to use her photo as inspiration for this piece.
