SEPTEMBER FAREWELL

September; the hummingbirds leave, soaring away into their amazing journey across the sky.

Over the mountains, above the rivers and the seas, around the roaring, searing fires, they are a tribute to life--the incomprehensible forces that create forever and forever (we hope).

I will say this, to people who put poison on flowers, about the world you leave for your great- great- grandchildren: if there are no hummingbirds, it will be a damned sad world.
