feast of love

Finished my work
so out and about
out to my apple tree
scouting bare branches
for a last sweet pomme pomme
let the gift call call out to me.
Circled my dear love
decked under her limbs
searching first low then high
I spyed my beauty
nigh in reach
but a buzzing began from nearby.
The fruit was striped red of comely form
and suspended within wanted reach
yet again the buzzing and humming came forth
as if to say Stop. I beseech!
Then I saw a tiny brown humming bird
treading air and feasting with glee
as I walked around to watch him drink
I heard Please Save this Beauty for ME
I SHALL.
Oh I didnt know my darling apple tree
fed sweet humming birds
and a birdy like me.
And I canna say why
but this stirred me to cry
as that little bird ate while I stood there
maybe to show me
Fear Not thee Hungry of Heart
as feasts of love in trees so bare
THERE
is abundance
in
the
unexpected
place
of Grace.
