Sparrow’s Song

The hedgerow is alive

A sweet choir from little throats
awakens the spirit
of spring

Winter preaches loyalty
from the pulpit
but a rebellious chorus
sings and the congregation

    I can see and hear the Sparrows chirping noisily, and feel the warm Spring air!

    Lovely poem.

    I really like this poem. It captures the restlessness we are all feeling and writing about as the last gasp of winter chills the air.
