A tiny little hummingbird
Once took me by surprise
Whirring wings and colors bright
He flew before my eyes.

Iridescent greens and reds
He took my breath away
He dipped right in the flowers
What a treat for me today!

He hovered over lilacs
And the roses he did seek
He sucked up the sweet nectar
With his slender long black beak.

I watched in awe as off he flew
His wings were beating fast
A tiny lovely hummingbird
I'd seen up close at last.
