a symphony of birdsong in a cherry tree
speaks to me as I pass by, calls me out
of the basement song I learned in church
to recognize as the voice to guide
in such things as the world passing by

“Even the sparrow has found a home, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may have her young—a place near your altar, O Lord Almighty, my King and my God.” Psalm 84:3
