CHANCE VISIT


CHANCE VISIT

 

A hummingbird moth visits

The flowers along-side

Our canopied entrance walk…

A sighting for a lifetime.

-

It’s rare to catch this moth after dark,

Perhaps it was fooled by parking lot lights

As it flitted from flower to flower…

Its humming wings barely in sight.

-

It kept on hovering around our walk

‘Til it hid in the bushes to sleep…

So tonight it won’t be a bat’s “order to go”

But its glad memory we will keep.
