The Smallest Of Birds

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 yet waits to be gleaned
By the smallest bird ever seen

Having taken daily nourishment
Their energy is fully spent

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


Weighing about the same as a nickel, hummingbirds are the smallest birds in the world.


One Word Sunday:  Small, Smaller or Smallest
