When other birds sing not,

Rifting the dreary rain,

Then cheerly, sparrow, you

Pipe your timely strain.

A hasty, wayward song,

Right faulty, I dare say;

But who will find it so

On a rainy day?

The critics nod, not you,

Minstrel of drizzly skies;

Sparrow, you know your hour.

Would we were half as wise!
