A Marvel Of Nature

A house sparrow's egg a tiny thing scarce larger than bean size
In Nature suppose one can say anything should not surprise
Pale of tiny brown spots to wonder it does give rise
That a tiny nestling can be born from it seems hard to realize

House sparrows build an untidy nest of feathers in a ball of hay
In bushy tree, shed rafters or under house eaves the female bird does lay
Four to six eggs at breeding time from buildings never far away
The nestlings in their straggly nest do chirp all through the day

Of all of the species of birds in every back yard perhaps the best known
The cheeky chirpers house sparrows do have ways of their own
The male with blue gray nape and back, wings and tail of mottled brown
The female of a duller gray birds at home in countryside or town

As well known birds as they are not many one could name
To be among the World's greatest chirpers their claim to avian fame
Whilst out walking the other day a marvel of Nature i found
A tiny pale brown spotted house sparrow's egg by a hedge on the ground
