A Victorian Christmas Advent Calendar: 15th December

Girl feeding robin

“With cold and with hunger half-famish’d and weak
Then tap at my window again with your beak,
Nor shall your petition be vain;
You shall fly to my bosom and perch on my thumbs,
Or hop round the table and pick up the crumbs,
And need not be hungry again”
From ‘Cock Robin’s picture book’, printed in colours by Kronheim & Co. (classmark 1874.7.207)
