SPARROW SONG

December 27, 2007 at 2:05pm (Poetry)

October’s hungry sparrows
                               (weary like the heart is)
fetch and carry nesting,
resting occasionally in the sun.
I, however, have no house
                                 (neither do I build one)
this chilly Tuesday
when restless birds pipe and call
among the thinning branches
and Winter, crouching on its haunches,
stalks the Fall
