Review of "The Sparrow" by Gerald Stern

The Sparrow by Gerald Stern was offered by Poets.org's Poem-A-Day on April 29, 2013.  In rambling prose-like poetry, the poet records his observations of a sparrow feasting on a piece of bread then, toward the end of the poem, ponders the differences between himself and the sparrow.  The poem was a bit too narrative in style for my taste.
