The Little Sparrow

Edith Piaf was a sparrow Who ignored the "straight and narrow" No pure white dove She sang for love Just as wild as Cupid's arrow

Aha! A splendid sparrow. One of my fave birds to draw and watch. Greatly enjoyed reading this. I can also endorse Cupid’s arrow at least after I turned 30. Hugs, sally

Indeed! But what about Shirley Bassey singing, "Never, Never, Never"? Aloha!

La vie en rose beautiful, Rico. I wish Cupid's arrows didn't always fly so straight.

With so many poems about autumn leaves and homelessness, who could forget Edith Piaf?
