  • Too Small for Grieving

    Fly little sparrow, don’t you stay,
    it’s not a day for singing.
    The morning air is cold and still,
    even the bells aren’t ringing.

    Go little sparrow, fly away
    for sorrows weep this morning.
    ‘Tis sad this day, my little friend;
    God’s own fields are mourning.

    Please little sparrow, off with you;
    such horrors, ‘tis hard believing.
    Take to the air, leave Flanders fields,
    your heart’s too small for grieving.

    Purest perspective - sad sight but quite enjoyed your classic rhyme.
