A Tiny Sparrow

Birds have inspired a lot of music.  Think of the 2nd movement of Beethoven’s Sixth Symphony, Mozart’s “The Magic Flute”, Vivaldi’s summer movement of “The Four Seasons”, the 3rd movement of Dvorak’s “American ” String Quartet, Williams’ “The Lark Ascending”.  The list goes on and on.  Here is a bird-inspired traditional folk song lamenting an unfortunate love.  Mary Travers sang it well and made you imagine that she wished to be a tiny sparrow.  Like bird song, her voice helped purify our ears.

    Wow, lovely song, lovely voice!

    Birds and bird flight have always fascinated me. Though I know I will always want to be a human being, I know I will never be happy without the existence of birds, esp. my little friends–the happy tiny sparrows. ^^

    Very touching music. Thanks for sharing it! ^^
