    This Sparrow they no longer fly

    sing me atop a warm wooden fence post
    from a bleak blue wayward sky
    cradle me on dying wings
    this sparrow they no longer fly

    carry me through swaying grass
    brushy pastures I use to know
    let me see my wife once more
    my lover let her know

    tell my father I forgive him
    console my mother when she cries
    even though I've crossed the plains
    this sparrow they no longer fly

    sail me back to Heiskell
    where my childhood was lost
    my family, home, to Tennessee
    amidst my vagrant thoughts

    ashes grey, sweet meadows green
    earth claims again once fourth whats brought
    this harbinger no longer fly's
    and ceases to be caught

    be brave my fledgling you've seen me fly
    now you can do the same
    today's horizons bring a new
    go fourth and spread your wings

    Great poem has a cool tone with solid imagery and cool repetition lines of "cats will know" and "spring face". the last stanza with " the hyacinth dawn,which drank the heart of those who no longer hope for you, i'm the sad smile who smiles alone.excellent writing.
