The Encounter - Poem by Edna Zimmerman Prentis

One day while walking in my garden,
I chanced to meet a little sparrow who hopped onto my path.
We stared at each other, and I said, "Hello"
He looked at me quizzically and seemed to say,
"You know, I live here too. Let's share this world together."
As we go to and fro, we will encounter many people.
May we always accept and love them
As we share this world together.
