claycolored sparrow quotes- 10 of
The hedge-sparrow fed the cuckoo so long
That it had its head bit off by its young.
Being fed by us you used us so
As that ungentle gull, the cuckoo's bird,
Useth the sparrow.
This was I,
I did my best;
If you want to catch a sparrow, you have to spill a little rice.
Although tiny, a sparrow has all five organs.
When a sparrow sips in the river, the water doesn't recede. Giving charity does not deplete wealth. Saint Kabir says so.
O quick quick quick, quick hear the song sparrow,
Swamp sparrow, fox sparrow, vesper sparrow
At dawn and dusk.
In spring more mortal singers than belong
To any one place cover us with song.
A sparrow enters the tree,
Among the pink and blue
Of the sky and the almond flowers
A sparrow flutters.
MWe have come through.
