˙·٠●♥ Wild and Free Forever Be ♥●٠·˙

Adult male Ruby-throated Hummingbird found beneath the feeder this a.m. What happened to you, exquisite li'l Beauty. We will miss your visits; your mighty hum and teeny twirps.

ღೋღ♥ღೋღ♥ღೋღ♥ღೋღ♥ღೋღ♥ღೋღ
And make us happy in the darting bird
That suddenly above the bees is heard
The meteor that thrusts in with needle bill
And off a blossom in mid air stands still

A Prayer in Spring (excerpt)
-Robert Frost
- - - - - - -

The sunlight speaks. And it's voice is a bird:
It glitters half-guessed half-seen half-heard
Above the flower bed. Over the lawn ...
A flashing dip and it is gone.
And all it lends to the eye is this
--A sunbeam giving the air a kiss.

The Hummingbird
-Harry Kemp

Thank you for this poem, Gravediggerღ

It's late October now, Beauty, and nights, especially, quite cool. The feeder has been vacant for a week, but will leave it up a week or so more for stragglers. Your family and it's new generation will come again next Spring, pretty one.ღ

[Per National Geographic re: Ruby Throated Hummingbirds: "Average life span in the wild is 5-9 years". Rather than leave the date "unk" and blank in the listing, 2010 sounds about right...]
