Sparrow

I am sparrow,
little one hiding in the bay hedge,
I make my nest,
I even sing.

I watch for sparrow hawks
and trill my warning,
my friends and I
make a cacophony.

I am brown, and tawn
I make the bay hedge my home,
I can be funny and sad,
I am clown and
trapeze artist.

I dip and shake,
I send tear drops scattering
I am sparrow,
I make my home,
in the scented foliage
in a secret garden
where the bay hedge runs
on and on and on

It's good, lovely even as a musical composition as it is a song.x
