Sparrow Parable

Noah Hill Isherwood

What of the sparrows? 

 

What of them? 

said I. 

 

Which of the sparrows 

is worthy of sky? 

Worthy of space, 

of freedom and wings…. 

Which of the sparrows 

merits these things? 

 

Well all of them. 

and I gestured about. 

 

Precisely, he said. 

All, and none.
