Emily Dickinson - Mama never forgets her birds,

Mama never forgets her birds,
Though in another tree --
She looks down just as often
And just as tenderly
As when her little mortal nest
With cunning care she wove --
If either of her "sparrows fall,"
She "notices," above.

It semes that she is talking about Mother nature, or even God (his eye is on the sparrow) I really like this one.

This poem reminds me of my mother. She just passed away. I can picture her looking down on us... her children and making sure we are safe. Thank you mom, for being you. I love you and miss you sooo much...
