The Hummingbird by Robert James Parfett
Yes, I am small, but can you move like me?
Can you fly backwards and hum like a bee?
Now you can see me! I've stopped for a while.
How you admire me. See how you smile.
Pay close attention! Don't even blink!
Look at my colours. What do you think?
I hover just briefly to suck up sweet nectar.
I guess you could say I'm a nectar collector.
Aviation designers have learned a few things
From watching me fly, and my light perfect wings.
You may think I'm cocky or too confident
But sit and observe. It will be time well spent.
