Hummingbird by Seals and Crofts

Oh hummingbird, mankind was waiting for you to come flying along.
Heavenly songbird, we were so wrong. We've harmed you.
Oh hummingbird, lend us your wings. Let us soar in the atmosphere of Abha.
Lift us up to the heaven of holiness, oh source of our being, oh hummingbird.

Hummingbird don't fly away, fly away.
Hummingbird don't fly away, fly away.
In you I've found a fragrance. I'll love you 'til I die.
I just love you, love you, love you.
I don't even know the reason why.

Hummingbird don't fly away, fly away.
Hummingbird don't fly away, fly away.
The sweetness of your nectar has drawn me like a fly.
I just love you, love you, love you.
I don't even know the reason why.
Now, Hummingbird don't fly away, fly away.
Hummingbird don't fly away, fly away.

Haven't you noticed the days somehow keep getting longer?
And the spirit voices whisper in us all.
Haven't you noticed the rays? The spirit sun is stronger
And a new day is dawning for us all.

Hummingbird don't fly away, fly away.
Hummingbird don't fly away, fly away.
Hummingbird don't fly away, fly away.
Hummingbird don't fly away, fly away.

The draught of understanding; wisdom, peace and love is ours.
Hummingbird don't fly away, fly away.
Hummingbird don't fly away, fly away.

I feed Hummingbirds throughout the season. Beautiful birds ....so unique.

Good for you! Do they leave for the winter? Where to?

Marty said...

Yes, they do leave. I can't think of where they go at the moment. In May when they return I feed them a 4 to 1 mix of water and sugar. Then in September I feed a 3 to 1 mix so that they have extra energy to travel. They are beautiful. Do you have them in the UK?

No! But with climate change deepening our weather is getting more extreme. Very hot summers (by our standards) are likely, and more migrating bird species from the continent.
