PARADISE ON THE HILLS

From the novel SUBLIME ADOPTION

A Tale of Love and Mendacity

(c) Mirta Oliva

(In Franklin, North Carolina)

 

In the Old North State, somewhere
The hummingbirds filled the air
Hovering around with a buzzing sound
As they flew up and around.

 

Colored in green, red and silvery blues
A rainbow splash in their glaring suits
To show their beauty with vibrant flare
To the grateful guests of Joe and Claire.

 

The radiant hummers loved to flutter
Where the sweet nectar lies
Swarming the feeders by sunrise
Up in the air, how they glitter
So full of luster, so oddly still ….

 

Oh, why those enchanting days
Had to end so quick
As we drove away
From the colorful and tranquil
Paradise on the Hills.
