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.
