Hummingbird, my hummingbird,
The patter of thy wings inferred,
Thou swiftly slip sips silently,
Thou doth not go unheard.
Hummingbird my sweet, sweet girl,
Stay and let thy wings unfurl,
Let me slide my wandering eyes,
To thy fragrant fleeting world.
Thou never stays in one stead place,
Thouest flutter with undying haste,
Why doth thou yearn to part so oft?
Perhaps to save thy flowering face?
With wings of lace,
Please find thy place,
And take thy look of dower,
Find one or two,
Perfect as you,
My blooming summer flower.
Hummingbird, oh glory day,
'Tis better that thou flies away
Though I'll miss thy darling grace
Thou art happy when thou doth not stay.
