The Hummingbird’s Keep

Write myself a little tale

About a hat or ‘haps a whale

Just to make the time pass quick

And trim my thoughts ‘fore they grow thick

Thick with reason and with doubt

Thick with scurrying about

Hurry, before I start my day

Before these thoughts run away

Join the humpback as he flies

Don the hat; be its disguise

Sing the toadstool fast asleep

That hummingbirds may earn their keep
