The Hummingbird

A Poem by Dara





From flower to flower


it flits and sips


the nector so sweet


without using lips.

Thank you so much Julie :-) I am almost in awe of them and get excited every time one happens by.
Hummingbirds are the most fascinating creatures, especially because of their minute size. Thanks, Dara.

I read that the Cherokee believed that seeing one before a big event was good luck. :)

You're right--it is a fun ditty, and clever, too. How ironic that I was just now cleaning up my feeder in anticipation of their arrival.
