A Sermon of Sparrows

I peek out my door
on Sunday morning
and a choir of sparrows
revs up their song.

Spying an open door,
the little preachers begin.
A sermon of sparrows:
“Remember the needy!”

I reprove them at times
for the sin of gluttony–
all those uneaten seeds!
Beggars mustn’t waste.

But they never repent –
always picking the best
and leaving the rest
for lesser creatures.
