I Saw a Hummingbird

I saw a hummingbird
and thought of you;

The feeder
you always kept full

Has been empty now
all season.

The small bird looked
confused, like me--
I went outside, barefoot,
to the feeder tree--

Then came inside and cleaned
and filled the glass
With sweet red nectar,
as you would have done.

Glad to hear you scold and smile again, too--
I saw a hummingbird

And thought of you.
