HUMMINGBIRDS
[ Also see Animals Birds ]

Jewelled coryphee
  With quivering wings like shielding gauze outspread.
      - Ednah Proctor Clarke (Hayes), Humming-Bird

Quick as a humming bird is my love,
  Dipping into the hearts of flowers--
    She darts so eagerly, swiftly, sweetly
      Dipping into the flowers of my heart.
      - James Oppenheim, Quick as a Humming Bird

And the humming-bird that hung
  Like a jewel up among
    The tilted honeysuckle horns
      They mesmerized and swung
        In the palpitating air,
          Drowsed with odors strange and rare.
            And, with whispered laughter, slipped away
              And let him hanging there.
      - James Whitcomb Riley,
        The South Wind and the Sun

A flash of harmless lightning,
  A mist of rainbow dyes,
    The burnished sunbeams brightening
      From flower to flower he flies.
      - John Banister Tabb, Humming Bird
