Lyrics of Earth

by Archibald Lampman


 

 

A RE-ASSURANCE


 

With what doubting eyes, oh sparrow,
    Thou regardest me,
Underneath yon spray of yarrow,
    Dipping cautiously.

Fear me not, oh little sparrow,                                                    5
    Bathe and never fear,
For to me both pool and yarrow
    And thyself are dear.
