Sparrow (Photo credit: barryskeates)

sparrows are unnoticed

masters of concealment

in mousy brown camouflage

an army of thousands

has conquered the world


sparrows are unseen


sparrows are unlovely

ancient as the hieroglyph

they herald the spring

with a lusty off-key tune

in praise of Aphrodite


sparrows are unheard


take courage in the sparrow

those who go unnoticed

those who go unseen

those who feel unlovely

those who feel unheard


do not be discouraged

do not feel unloved

take comfort in the sparrow


special providence is reserved

even for this humdrum little bird
