wondrous, beautiful bird that never stops day and night



Oh little hummingbird

So beautiful, so tiny

 And oh so fragile

With wings that shine

With the colours of a rainbow

So brightly

And wings of gold spread out so wide


I see from the beauty of mine own eye

How that you fly

What do you see in me so?

That keeps you looking on at me?

Maybe that we both see a beauty

That we both possess

In both our own eyes


From flower to flower

You hover

Collecting the sweet, sweet nectar

That is so desired

And full of power



Sweet Hummingbird

A symbol of the spreader of life

On this earth

And of rebirth

A bringer of peace


You may be small

But have the power

Of an eagle

When needed to protect

Your family


Your reputation is powerful

Held in a high regard

From every Tribal Nation

Across this New World

The United States of America


Sweet, sweet Hummingbird

That will endure

Through life
