The Hummers Are Back!

I could hear a couple of days ago
As I sat in my reclining chair
A whirring sound and looked up
A little humming bird was there

He tried to send me a message
I heard it loud and clear
I knew just what he wanted
I smiled at the little dear

I cooked the sugar and water
Let it awhile cool and then
Poured it into the feeder
Yes, that’s the yearly trend

And now I sit and smile a lot
So many it’s hard to keep track
Of those tiny whirling birds
Yes, the hummers are definitely back!

Hi Marilyn Sweet poem.... yes, they're back here, too...and they so love the red blossoms of the pineapple sage......a deliciously-scented plant...it returns every year to welcome them....... Love, D.
