sparrow
deb a baby sparrow fell yesterday
from it's nest on the balcony above ours..
i got out a stool and some rubber gloves
so my scent wouldn't be on the poor thing,
got it back in its nest, and everything

so proud-

but tonight i saw the sparrow again,
on the deck,
and it had died...
now i wonder,
did it fall again?
did its mother kick it out
from it smelling of rubber gloves?
would it still be alive if i'd left it
alone?

sigh.
didn't mean to kill you
little bird

jane and garfunkel Who will love a little Sparrow?
Who's traveled far and cries for rest?
"Not I," said the Oak Tree,
"I won't share my branches with
no sparrow's nest,
And my blanket of leaves won't warm
her cold breast."

Who will love a little Sparrow
And who will speak a kindly word?
"Not I," said the Swan,
"The entire idea is utterly absurd,
I'd be laughed at and scorned if the
other Swans heard."

Who will take pity in his heart,
And who will feed a starving sparrow?
"Not I," said the Golden Wheat,
"I would if I could but I cannot I know,
I need all my grain to prosper and grow."

Who will love a little Sparrow?
Will no one write her eulogy?
"I will," said the Earth,
"For all I've created returns unto me,
From dust were ye made
and dust ye shall be."
