Song of a Sparrow

Middle School English

Return to Main Notebook

I see on a twig
In the first morning light
The sight of a sparrow
So tiny and beautiful
With her sweet, sunny tune
She sings out the morning
Her children at her side
Not a care in the world

Why does the sparrow sing of joy?
There is no happiness in the world
But still she sings
Her song is at one
With the creatures of the forest
Even though they do not hear her

The sun sets behind a sea of blue
Purples and reds fill the sky
Now she sings no more
