Sleep little sparrow

Sleep little sparrow

A Poem by Devyani

Sleep little sparrow

Into a rainless morn'

Where the seeds would spring into

The land of greener pastures

 

Sleep little sparrow

Don't be so afraid

For tonight may be rough

But on the 'morrow lays a breeze

 

Sleep little sparrow

Hug yourself close for a change

For the hurt and the pain

Won't always last the darkness

 

Sleep little sparrow

Between the love and the lost

Those fragile wings of yours

Will fly you into a better sky

 

Sleep little sparrow

Have heart you'll be braver

The sun will be out soon

Don't let the food quiver too long

 

Sleep little sparrow

Know you won't need a guardian angel

For even though this is my last goodbye

I'll see you flying around with pride.

Author's Note

Devyani
Posting this was my way of trying to shake off some rust along with a few thoughts. It's not writer's block it's just the only writing I've ended up with is college work. Either way, go easy on me; It's late & I wrote this too quickly.

I read the entirety... the verse has potential... in my personal opinion you could just put the repeating line at the beginning, middle and end... and combine the stanza into twp parts and still have the effectiveness in this write:

Sleep little sparrow

Into a rainless morn'
Where the seeds would spring into
The land of greener pastures
Don't be so afraid
For tonight may be rough
But on the 'morrow lays a breeze
Hug yourself close for a change
For the hurt and the pain
Won't always last the darkness

Sleep little sparrow

Between the love and the lost
Those fragile wings of yours
Will fly you into a better sky
Have heart you'll be braver
The sun will be out soon
Don't let the food quiver too long
Know you won't need a guardian angel
For even though this is my last goodbye
I'll see you flying around with pride.

Nice.... On a different note the sparrow is becoming extinct and it reflects on our civilization. Hope to see them flying on the morrow...

"Sleep little sparrow
Between the love and the lost"-----

How can one sleep between love and loss...
love in turn lead to loss..

But it is really wonderful. Well placed words.... quiet a flow..

this is so gentle, its very beautiful :) i imagine you are spekaing off, or to, a sparrow with a broken wing...the hurt will heal, the moment with pass and freedom shall be borne again on the winds. the skies are alive with little sparrows and mist rises from the loch beneath :)

A wonderful flow of beauty woven with a hit of sorrow or sadness. It's effect is a dreamlike reality that paints itself in the serene wonder of a sparrows night time repast and gentle wing. Almost like a lulliby for a child, this might be a lulliby for a bird. Perhapts the thoughts of the sparrows mother.

Simply beautiful poetry! Well crafted and honed to be an enjoyable reading experience.
Great Ink!
