The Robin and the Sparrow
"Said the robin to the sparrow,
'I should really like to know,
Why these anxious human beings Rush about and worry so.'
"Said the sparrow to the robin,
'Friend I think that it must be,
That they have no Heavenly Father,
Such as cares for you and me.'”
I memorized this verse when a young girl from seeing it hanging upon the wall of a friend’s kitchen. At that time I did not memorize the author nor the title, which I have since discovered to be "Overheard In An Orchard" by Elizabeth Cheney.
Editor's Note: I first published this post in 2006, and since that time I have received the following comments (copied from the now defunct blog).
