Overheard In The Orchard

Said the robin to the sparrow
I’d really like to know
why these anxious human beings
rush about and worry so.
Said the sparrow to the robin
I think that it must be
they have no Heavenly Father
such as cares for you and me.

Attributed to Elizabeth Cheney

I learned this verse in 1958 or 1959 and recited it at church one Sunday.
It has stayed in my memory all this time and I still love it.  SM
