THE FALL OF THE SPARROW, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Are you dying, little bird
Last Line: "poor and innocent as I."
Alternate Author Name(s): Father Tabb
Subject(s): Sparrows

Are you dying, little bird?
"Yea, the song so often heard
And the gift of suffering
Back to God again I bring.

"All in each, and each in all,
Counting in the sparrow's fall,
By the power of sinless pain
(His and ours) He cleanseth stain.
Suffering, He deigned to die
Poor and innocent as I."
