Poetry Friday original - Hummingbird

Poetry Friday is being hosted this week at Author Amok . Thanks to Laura for hosting!

A week ago last Sunday we had multiple hummingbird sightings in our yard (which was far, far nicer than flood water last Sunday).

I dug out a children's poem I wrote a few years ago, while staying at my sister's house during her battle with cancer -- it is a fond memory.


by James Danielson

Hummingbird, hummingbird
Beak black and long
If I could get close
Would your wings sing a song?

Hummingbird, hummingbird
Throat painted red
You spot a sweet meal
In my flowering bed.

Hummingbird, hummingbird
Back shines so green
Bees scare you away
I think they're so mean.

Hummingbird, hummingbird
High in the tree
You need more to eat
So come fly back by me.

Very touching!

And I am happy it rhymes. I'm all about the rhyme.
