The Sparrows’ Thanksgiving Feast

By Thelma J. Lund

I watched the fluttering sparrows eat their fill
Of pyracantha berries when the chill
Of winter held earth in its frozen grip,
And felt a joyous thrill I did not clip
The berried branches as a center spray
For my Thanksgiving table that bleak day.

(1955)

  1. I liked this a lot. Not just the sentiment, but the mention of pyracantha. I associate that spiky bush with my Utah childhood!
