Lady, Green and Red

Lady loved the plants’ light green
with flowers brightly red
Her face angelically serene
Had leaves to shade her head.

She’s quite happy to spend summer
For her companions are the best
They welcome an occasional hummer
Who may want to build a nest.

The ruby throat builds a tiny home
And fills the lady’s barren clay cup
Now her heart has no need to roam
For at the red trumpets she’ll sup.

Lady with love, watches over the nest
When the babes come into the world
Sheltering them, ensuring they rest
Until their wings are ready to unfurl.

Author’s Note:

The challenge was to add to Frank’s (Frank Hubeny) poem featured on Poetry, Short Prose, and Walking. He penned the first stanza (In Bold) and I added the next three. Beautiful photo and words, Frank!

Linked to Jilly’s Casting Bricks August Challenge as the second part of a collaborative poem. If you have the opportunity, check out Jilly’s challenge- it’s great fun!
