Like Sparrows In The Nest - Poem by Dr. Antony Theodore

Like eagles in the cliffs,
I slept in the arms of my God.

Like sparrows in its nests,
I chattered in the presence of my God.

Like a wounded dove,
I shivered in his presence and wept bitterly
until I had no tears.

    A classic poem!
    I loved the comparisons with the birds - my favourite beings
    The eagle, sparrow and the dove and the presence of the divinity in them.
    A full vote Tony.
