The hummingbird is a shining example of resilience.
How do hummingbirds behave?
Which is your favorite backyard bird?
Patter of wings
Moves up,round, in an eights
Flying forth with stoic strength, so
Flits now from bud to bud
Grabs its spoils as it ascends with
Fits in flowers
Petals close on small frame
Wings cause a stir as it flies out
The tapered form
Drawing forth from tubed stem
Gold treasure buried, it rises
With might its space
Halts birds it's size double
Emerges from battle, small form
