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.
