C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
 
Sparrow
 
        The sparrows chirped as if they still were proud
Their race in Holy Writ should mentioned be.
Longfellow.    
  1
        The hedge-sparrow fed the cuckoo so long,
That it had it head bit off by it young.
Shakespeare.    
  2
        Blithe wanderer of the wintry air,
Now here, now there, now everywhere,
    Quick drifting to and fro,
A cheerful life devoid of care,
    A shadow on the snow.
George W. Bungay.    
  3
        And in thy own sermon, thou
That the sparrow falls dost allow,
It shall not cause me any alarm;
For neither so comes the bird to harm,
Seeing our Father, thou hast said,
Is by the sparrow’s dying bed;
Therefore it is a blessed place,
And the sparrow in high grace.
George MacDonald.
