Little Sparrow

Little sparrow

fell from high

hit her head

and promptly died.

Momma bird

felt all alone

said, “Now this nest

is not a home.”

“We’re still here,”

brothers cried.

“We’re so sad

that sister died.”

“And I’m about,”

said Daddy bird.

But momma bird heard

not a word.

She tried to chirp.

She tried to sing.

She tried to do

most anything

to mend the place

within her heart

little sparrow left


she fell apart.

  1. Written for my neighbor whose 9 ya old daughter died in a car accident this past March. My neighbor was driving. They were hit by a drunk driver. Her stepson was also in the car but he wasn’t hurt. It is sad. She was just a little sparrow. Thanks for reading Uma.
