The Flower and the Hummingbird

Not too long ago, and being so small,
I knew of my purpose nothing at all.

                Oh, sweet little bud, how I yearned to be fed
                Abiding long days, hoping petals would spread

As cotton clouds cried and moistened my space,
I bloomed forth in glory, sun warming my face!

               One illustrious morn, as my rounds had begun
               Your petals yawned tenderly, kissed by the sun

A beautiful bird with fast-flapping wings
is nourished by me; oh, how my heart sings!

              Now, dear one, don't fear me as gently, I spin
              For precious, the nectar, that sweetens within

The reason my sisters and I sprang from earth -
sweet-scented and pink - I now KNOW! I have worth!

              Each sunrise we'll greet with harmonious song
              Serenading the day until shadows grow long!

    I love this, Andrea. The flower and the hummingbird...who would've thought? So clever and so lovely. I was just telling a neighbor this afternoon that I wanted to get a hummingbird feeder this year and then I read your poem. Good luck to you and your partner in the contest though I doubt you need it.

    This poem sounds familiar, but in any case, I love its happy cadence and I love hummingbirds.
