The Sparrow

Posted by Range Officer Rhonda on February 14, 2008

Hungry, hungry

We search through the leaves

Something tasty

Rest in the trees.

Alert, alert

Somebody cries

Fly away home

Before some of us dies.

WHAM, fall

I’m stunned, can’t  bend

A sudden jarring

And darkness descends.

Warm, wet

How can that be?

I hold very still.

What’s happened to me?

Hold, hold

Don’t move a bit

A light comes back on,

Could this be it?

Shush, shush

Poor little thing

I’ll set you free

To enjoy the spring.
