I Threw my window open wide
And beckoned him to come inside
He looked at me and blinked an eye
Then turned and flew into the sky

Long I stared into the gloom
From out the silence of my room
Until I mused with whispered sigh
We two are brothers, that sparrow and I

Which way shall I take the course to my readerís hearts,
What scale and tools do I collect with,
What voyeurís wrap I claim in readiness.
Are the ages of my father come to bear,
Or will be for next generationís benefit:
And for sure hope luck to smile a lot,
Unless I weaken in devotion,
That I harbor this pretext,
Where course is subject to a wanton age.
Gather, flock with us; examine all to beyond:
Valiant person have surpassed our time.

cheers,
