Hummingbird Alouette

wings beating, beating
a frenzied greeting
hovering around my head
here and there you flit
with no time to sit
so much work to keep you fed

oh you little sprite
wonder at your flight
you're so like a magic spell
flash of ruby wing
pleasure that you  bring
here and gone, a sweet farewell

    Barbara, this summer we had a hummingbird that would actually sit in our cherry tree; we would watch it from our family room. We were sure there was a nest there...somewhere, but we couldn't find it. The nests are about dime size. Would love to have one. Lovely poem. Good luck.
