The Little Sparrow’s Melody

Written In Response To:

V.J. Weekly Challenge #62: Child/Childhood –  Ponder what it means to be a child.

A Chipping Sparrow in Sunset Light

A child of darkness

a child of light

a child of weakness

a child of might

 

A child of weeping

a child of laughter

a child of dreaming

a child of slaughter

 

A child of love and hate

both became this child’s fate

the warring within raged

a tender sparrow’s imprisoned cage

 

One day an Angel came

opened the cage to set her free

this sparrow’s life was never the same

she was free to fly, free to breathe

 

War turned to peace clarity beckoned

finally she was able to sing her song

through Wisdom she now reckoned

it was to Love she knew she belong

 

Blessed is this precious sparrow

who has known darkness’s tragedy

for the dawn of every new tomorrow

hope has become her soul’s melody.
