Sparrow




The tiny sparrow
sings its winter song
to leafless trees.

It braves the snow
to announce a new day
and the hope spring
will soon bring its warmth.

Buried in blankets
of pessimism,
humanity grumbles
of cold feet and
winter will never end.

love the contrast between the sparrow and humanity...and pessimism and complacency certainly have killed a many or at least kept them from singing...

He puts us in our place! What a bunch of whingers we humans are.
