A Hummingbird's Song



By: Danielle Elizabeth Torres

Delicate wings of feather they're made like petals of a flower intertwined amongst one another the placement of perfection Who could have known that those wings of fragility could carry the bird to lofty heights Weíre thankful for those wings to bring us song song of melancholy song of passion song of elation a chirp distinct by its pitch Resting on the branch the hummer is a rare one for there is no other with its power like sun to earth the bird brings light a feeling of emotion If nothing more at least a precious sight Beady eyes look down upon the Earth knowing all through experience the bird has something to say a story to be told Over rushing waters splitting the breeze with its path the bird gains wisdom through its travels.
