Today's poem - To a Song Sparrow Nesting Outside My Window by Elizabeth Yates


To a Song Sparrow Nesting Outside My Window
by Elizabeth Yates

I have a little house,
its roof is snug and tight,
its windows frame wide views
of mutable delight.

Your house is roofed with sky
and sheltered by a tree,
I work with words
and you in minstrelsy.

With gifts we grace
the world we share,
making of songs
a way of prayer.

Also, you may comment on any post, no matter how old, and I will see it.
