I just saw a humming bird,
Whispering a humble word.
You say, "no, that's so absurd,
to be humbled by a bird,
let alone it whisper words".
Delusional as it may seem,
This bird it whispered things to me.
Said, "take it slow" with humming wings.
"Abolish all unneeded things".
Said, "life is now" as it zoomed by,
"Without this nectar life'd be dry"..
said, "take a drink and take it slow,
let it sit then let it flow.
Tickle your tongue, and soft your humm,
Simplicity will keep you young".
