Hummingbird, hummingbird, why do you hum?
I hum to feel glad when the world is glum.
Hummingbird, what if it’s sunny today?
Then I hum in the hope it continues that way.
Hummingbird, can’t you remember the words?
I remember them all, and recite them
at once in both languages, human and bird.
Ah, so that’s why it buzzes. Alright then.
Hummingbird, could you please teach me your song?
I will, since you ask so politely.
Hummingbird, could I try flying along?
You may, if you take yourself lightly.
