My Visitor


I heard a quiet, curious sound Like the beating of a tiny wing Dropped my rake and looked around For some hidden fairy-tail thing That's when my heart began to sing Around my head a burst of green With a glorious scarlet breast The most wonderful bird Id ever seen With wings that never came to rest Oh lovely, my little garden guest For several months it stayed with me Flitting here and hovering there I think a nest high in my tree It seemed we had no earthly care The summer of my hummingbird affair

    I love hummingbirds and love your poem! I feel the same as you do when I see one. By the way, I live in New York City and am just visiting California.....
