When I Hear a Sparrow Sing

When I Hear a Sparrow Sing

When I hear a sparrow sing,
My eyes look up and find
That looking up's a simple thing
To change a downcast mind.

The sparrow sings with head held high,
Its music fills the air,
And, suddenly, beneath its sky,
My gloomy weather's fair.

As green leaves reach to gather sun,
Which sprinkles light below,
The sparrow leaps, its song is done,
For us, it's time to go.

To go and sing the soul's delight,
And fill the day with song,
And gather up the Heaven's light
Below the whole day long.

About the Poet
Husband, father, grandfather, and each title is my joy. As a youth, poetry was a means to express the inexpressable. I was attracted to (and still am) the beauty and brevity of verse. All flows out from God, and like a proper prayer, can flow back.
