Hum A Few Bars For Me – One Moment’s Poem

Hum A Few Bars For Me

I watch the hummingbirds
late
each afternoon
coming to suckle on plant nectar
and sugared water dessert.
Some call out their hungry
early evening appearance
on the balcony.
I call back sweetly
welcoming.
Faithfully.
For, if anything,
I am faithful
to unasked for
faithfulness.
Who is less loyal
than the fleeting hummingbird
suckling for a moment
here and there?
