In December I remember
In the rain and frosty snow
     hungry cardinals,
     hungry blue jays,
     hungry sparrows: Here I go.

Here's a piece of toast I've saved you
From my breakfast, warm and good,
     hurry cardinals,
     hurry blue jays,
     hurry sparrows: Here's your food.

from The Sky is Full of Song selected by Lee Bennett Hopkins, illustrated by Dirk Zimmer, 1983, Harper & Row
