Fly little hummingbird
Sing to me
And if you do I promise to set you free
Fly little hummingbird	
Whisper into my ears
Of your thoughts, anxieties and fears
Of an uncertain future
And all that it bears
Fly little hummingbird	
Flap your wings
And fly around in circles
Making beautiful rings
And backwards
And downward
Then upwards again
Little hummingbird makes a remarkable spin
Little hummingbirds with a tube like beak
Sucks nectar from hibiscus 
But they barely speaks
Steals a beetle from a spider web
As he reach
Then flies away and away
Hummingbird flaunts his colorful feathers to its female
Emerald green
With golden wings
Coated with deep violet
As he enjoy all that life brings
