Even the Sparrow

 October 26, 2017

Ordinary Time – Season of Stability

I am a sparrow, plain and brown, small.

I can slip unnoticed into your life and out again.

I am shy.

Do not lunge at me for I will fly away.

But if you patiently wait, I may come and sit on your lap.

I will sing to you with small, hesitant chirps.

I am a sparrow, small and plain.

Don’t send me away.

Even the sparrow finds a home, and the swallow a nest.     Psalm 84:4
