Hummingbird flies close
Around the watering can
I hold in my hand

Hummingbirds are curious, although they rarely come that close to humans! What a wonderful experience!

Lovely! The hummingbird must have been your muse that day. I have a dragonfly that keeps coming to visit me. Now I'll have try to write a poem as clever as yours for him.

Hummingbirds are amazing, as is your encounter and portrayal of it in the poem!

The first is such an amazing word, and bird.
