Why so forlorn? You have a sprightly sparrow atop your head, when you could have snow

…and just around the corner of the house, and in the nearby hedgerow, the first crocus are blooming…
Just below and all around the stump on which you sit, the tiny Birdseye Speedwell are spilling the sky at your feet…and surely you have heard the geese more often in the larger sky above you?
