by Christina Georgina Rossetti (1830 - 1894)

If the sun could tell us half
Language: English 
If the sun could tell us half
  That he hears and sees,
Sometimes he would make us laugh,
    Sometimes make us cry:
Think of all the birds that make
  Homes among the trees;
Think of cruel boys who take
    Birds that cannot fly.
