Let's read together:

On the highest branch
close to the star
there is a true sparrow
chirping and jumping.
He saw from the windowsill
this fairy tree:
the window was open,
with a flurry it flew
on the highest branch,
right next to the star,
the real sparrow
chirping and jumping.
It's cold outside
don't chase him away
he is the Christmas guest
it will make you happy.
Of all your party
a crumb will be enough,
on the red tablecloth
will walk a little,
then he will return to his branch,
close to his star,
the real sparrow
chirping and jumping
