I Can Hear the Hummingbird

[I just added one word at the end — otherwise it’s the same as Draft 1… and I spelled hummingbird wrong: I had made it into two words — humming bird]

I Can Hear The Hummingbird (Draft 2)
[When the Hummingbird Hums]

A little ordinary bird told me
the hummingbird can hear
the flower sing the tune of the petal
when she sings in the wind of his wings,
as he drinks of her nectar. And yes too

the winter flower
under the awning is yawning
as a child wakes up too early, and
bounces on the bed of joy, like
these songs are in harmony, and
in the wind of joy

everybody jump
