Sparrow
Sparrow (Photo credit: barryskeates)

sparrows are unnoticed

masters of concealment

in mousy brown camouflage

an army of thousands

has conquered the world

yet

sparrows are unseen

 

sparrows are unlovely

ancient as the hieroglyph

they herald the spring

with a lusty off-key tune

in praise of Aphrodite

yet

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
