Sparrows of Sunday

Sparrows are tiny playmates to me since my childhood days. I used to run behind them. I had only one wish, I wanted to catch one sparrow and kiss it. But could never kiss. Now I am grown up. I don't run behind them. But I keep clicking them whenever I fiddle with my camera.

The Sparrow

A LITTLE bird, with plumage brown,
Beside my window flutters down,
A moment chirps its little strain,
Then taps upon my window-pane,
And chirps again, and hops along,
To call my notice to its song;
But I work on, nor heed its lay,
Till, in neglect, it flies away.

So birds of peace and hope and love
Come fluttering earthward from above,
To settle on life's window-sills,
And ease our load of earthly ills;
But we, in traffic's rush and din
Too deep engaged to let them in,
With deadened heart and sense plod on,

Nor know our loss till they are gone.
