House Sparrow [Passer domesticus]

I am back, phew, and what a long time. I have been moving my house to another. But, it has been three weeks to have my internet back. Well, I'm glad to be a blogger again.
There has been a good number of birds, especially the Peregrine Falcon, great find. House Sparrows were so many, that is why PF came so many time.

  7. The Sparrow
    A little bird, with plumage brown,
    Beside my window flutters down,
    A moment chirps its little strain,
    Then taps upon my window-pane,
    And chirps again, and hops along,
    To call my notice to its song;
    But I work on, nor heed its lay,
    Till, in neglect, it flies away.

    So birds of peace and hope and love
    Come fluttering earthward from above,
    To settle on life's window-sills,
    And ease our load of earthly ills;
    But we, in traffic's rush and din
    Too deep engaged to let them in,
    With deadened heart and sense plod on,
    Nor know our loss till they are gone.
