my pretty hummingbird

My delicate flower 
This rare orchid.............. 
What you just did 
Feel its' power 

Petals to unfold 
Ready to grow 
My story untold 
Ready to know 

My pretty hummingbird 
Accept my honey dew 
Free for you 
You have the last word 
Act as you do 

Draw in to me 
Irridescent wings 
My honey dew, 
is only for you, 
amongst other things 

This whirr of wing 
My petals unfold 
Honey dew 
I bring 
Only for you 
My story now told 

She is compelled to seek 
My honey dew, 
with her beak 
Pretty hummingbird 
Needs me too 
The sweetness I leak 

honey dew to give 
Pretty hummingbird to live 
Petals unfold 
My story now told
