as the Sparrow that falls

if any Tree falls
and no one's around
to hear its last call,
will it make a sound?

gently it sways,
arcs down through the sky.
no fireworks or sparks
to sound its demise.

though no man may hear
the end of its tail;
though no man may cheer,
or whistle, or yell,

the Tree makes a sound
to One who knows all.
He knows it goes down,
as the Sparrow that falls.
