The boy and the sparrow
Under the eaves of a house, in her little nest sat a sparrow. Gathered wings and head bent shivering in the cold air. He was tired, hungry and many half-frozen.
The winter was harsh and cold, and he had nowhere to go.
Came out of the house boy. He was carrying bread crumbs. He ran a yard covered with snow and stood next to the tree. He tossed the crumbs in front of him and waited. Sparrow looked up and saw a boy in the backyard. With difficulty he spread his wings and frozen slowly landed in front of the boys. He was not afraid, because the boy was his friend. While collecting the crumbs the sparrow suddenly appeared neighbor's cat. She extended her long claws, and prepared to jump. Sparrow is a lot scared. He left the crumbs and quickly escaped to a nearby tree branch. Cat went after him, but the boy did not give her to a tree climb . She was struck by a snowball, and she ran away. Sparrow has landed with a boom and continued to eat the crumbs. When it all began to eat happily chirp.
The boy took it in his hand and gently stroked the wings, and even more sparrow is chirped. Few crumbs of bread made happy sparrow. He was no longer hungry and tired. With its cheerful song thanked the boy for his kindness.
