12 Ways of Looking at Birds

VIII.

Such a marvel I think

as I observe these tiny

feathered beings flit and hum.

 

Hummingbirds fly hundreds of miles

in a day and weigh

less than a nickel – I have read.

 

But I know that what it is like

to hold a Hummingbird,

– is incomprehensible, unless you have.

 

A feather-soft weightless heartbeat

– in your hand.
