A HUMMING IN FLIGHT
by Ellen Lou Severs
(Kn. Tn. U.S.A.)
You are a sight to see when you fly.
You are so tiny, when in flight.
You are an enjoyment of pure delight.
The humming sounds to me,
A buzzing like no other, can be.
I know you are here so brief.
Come in the spring,
then leave in early fall.
Your feathers of emerald green, and gray,
Your throat of red and white.
Your eyes are black with lashes unseen.
Luck you always, do bring me.
Your meer presence calms me down.
A big smile inside that forever glows.
Knowing you still come around.
A Humming in flight,
leaves me with no fright.
