Presto Wings

(Presto is a musical term indicating a very rapid tempo)

Hummm
Your wings I hear.
Hummm
I know you’re near.
Hummm
Now you I see.
Hummm
You’re close to me.

Tiny, delicate,
Yet strong and sure.
Pretty green,
With wings a blur.
Lapping nectar
With your long tongue.
Hovering there
‘Till your drink is done.
Darting
Here and there
Seemingly
Without a care.
Except
When the wasps are there.
“Mine.”
They seem to dare.

Feeder to honeysuckle
Then back once more.
Wings don’t seem
To get tired and sore.
Don’t chase the other girls
There’s plenty for all,
Even if the feeders
Are rather small.

Take time to rest
On the honeysuckle vine.
You’re such fun to watch,
Friend of mine.
Or maybe you fly
To the Mulberry tree
From my window
I still can see.

Hummm.
You’re gone for a while
Hummm.
When you return, I’ll smile.
