Robin Small Held Tight


robin small bow

Held tight by a constant hesitation, for a time, Robin’s world remained unchanged – as did he.

Footnote:   Robin seems to be a quietly brave lad, who may have undisclosed or hidden doubts and fears.   Maybe he’s standing still and taking his own time to work things out?  Maybe he’s not ready to go anywhere right now?   Do anything?

Perhaps being armed with bow but not with arrow suggests he’s making peace with something?  Or he is a peacemaker?  Or maybe he’s declaring his difference to Robin Hood, who stole from the rich to give to the poor?  Maybe he doesn’t feel the need to ‘save’ anyone?  Anything?   Except maybe himself right now?
