‘Hummingbirds’ and Other Poetry by JoyAnne O’Donnell The Society April 4, 2013 Poetry Hummingbirds How dramatic of thou hummingbird Glides like a cherub through airs curb Precious gems scatter across and fly To sparkle and gleam in our eye How the glistened hummer Unfolds an enchanted summer Soaring like magic rockets Landing on small branches pockets. On the summer’s sweet wing With a tropical hugging swing How the hummingbirds hum Like a golden kazoo’s chum. What a glorious season fragrant with blossoming reason Oh! How the land is warm Like fresh herbal tea’s form. Nectar as sweet as a plum Carries the hummingbirds hum Into all the earth’s gardens asking for flowers’ pardons. Innocence of Roses The innocent veil of a rose Petals of a precious stay Summers magical fragile pose The suns candle warms the day. The suns trumpet blows rays out Roses’ thorns guard their beauty When it rains life’s water clouds pout Grows fragrance like a perfume. In the daylight when all is right Vases cheer roses’ tea cups Picking spirits above life’s height Healing all our nature’s hearts. JoyAnne O’Donnell is a poet living in Maryland.
