A pastoral meditation
Hummingbird so exquisite,
A marvel of creation,
From where you came,
I do not know,
But it comforts me to see,
There is beauty and grace
And things worth living for
There is a purpose and a plan
It is this beautiful bird,
Flitting from flower to flower,
Sipping only enough,
Nectar to keep,
Its tiny heart beating so fast.
The lion and the hyena,
The wolf and the cougar,
The cobra and the crocodile,
With its nasty grin,
Make me wonder about God,
But then I remember,
There is beauty and grace,
In the form of a tiny bird,
And when I ask God "Why",
I think God heard.
