The Hummingbird

The Hummingbird

A Poem by Dara





From flower to flower


it flits and sips


the nector so sweet


without using lips.

Beautiful! Loved it. The Hummingbird is a beautiful bird and you have shown it in your lines amazingly.
The way they drink, dance everything about these small creatures is wonderful. I wish we were like them, happy and carefree.

Hummingbirds drink with their tongues by rapidly lapping nectar. Their tongues have tubes which run down their lengths and help the hummingbirds drink the nectar. Great little poetic write highlighting the Hummingbird's 'dance'!
