˙·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.

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...]
