So Many Hummingbirds | A Poem by Donal Mahoney

This August evening
so many hummingbirds
helicopters of the garden

hover and dart
iridescent in the dusk
flower to flower

sipping perhaps
a last supper
then flying South

before the leaves
before the snow
us at the window

praying they’ll stay
knowing they can’t
praying for spring
