Anyone Who Has Studied

July 17, 2014

Anyone who has studied

The flight of hummingbirds

Is amazed by  their wings

Not easy to focus on

Flashing swiftly in sync

Controlling their approach

And retreat from feeders

Allowing them to hover.

Emily

  1. A beautiful and visual poem. It makes me sad I’ve never seen a hummingbird!

      They’re gorgeous, but you have to look quick, they move so fast. I get the ruby-throats where I live. They are tiny living jewels.
