Ode To The Hummingbird


Estes Park, Colorado – 2013

Luminescent red and green
Shimmers in a low lit beam

Hummingbirds to flight are called
Before the veil of twilight falls

Frontward, backward…high and low
Darting quickly to and fro

Drumming wings all in a flurry
On a mission…got to hurry

Nectar still waits to be gleaned
By God’s most wondrous bird yet seen

Having taken nourishment
Their energy is fully spent

Time now for a well-earned rest
Before once more put to the test

 *In memory of Della Bowman, who loved hummingbirds.
