Tribute to a Hummingbird

Updated on September 24, 2016

Such a colorful bird, the Humming bird, as perpetually your wings are in motion,

You flit and fly all about, from flower to flower, its nectar to devour, is your notion.

As you find the petals that you seek, you follow your nose, a sharply pointed beak,

Flying forward, back, all sweets do track, spreading pollen, never a lack, to streak.

Busying yourself from hour to hour, all colorful plants are surprised by a shower,

As you explore every garden, feast upon treats, onward you go, bower to bower.

At the start of each day, ready to work, you're very sight, gives our moods a perk.

Not a small trifle would you ever to shirk, as trying to follow you, drives us besirk.

As you finally find a time to rest, it must be so hard, as you're so full of zest,

Buzzing all around with your humming bird sound, and to fulfill every quest.

Our little friend, best regards to you we do extend, our envy, we do confess.

When watching your flight, is such a delight, a nice treat, as we're so blessed.

      I felt myself delicately yet zippily moving with the hummingbird you colourfully described. While I personally don't think I have seen a hummingbird alive I somehow just connect joy to the hummingbird. Thank you for bringing greater joy into our day whonu

      The hummingbird is a beautiful and amazing creation. I saw one in my garden awhile back and at first thought it was a large bee or insect but on closer inspection saw it was a tiny bird, wings moving so fast to almost sound like a buzz. Wonderful tribute.

      Lovely hub and photos. Jonah wrote that he'd seen one in his garden in Qld, but I didn't think we had humming-birds in Australia, I've only seen them in the US.
