Oh Hummingbird so rare hum
a tune for me delicate and fair 
beauteous as you creating
sample gentle breezes by

pettiness expanding to a life
of wholeness fluttering vibrant
melodies staffed in goblets of
succulent
nectar fitting midnight
enriched sonata

Hummingbird responds to the
lending of an ear for escaping
those city barriers by letting
heart flutter with the steady
rhythm of a whip-poor-will
calling from home in a valley
on a long summer night
for the blending harmony
from night sounds carrying
very exhilarating vocals
prevailing against those
dreadful ominous deafening
city sounds

As I awoke thru hopeful 
monarch eyes of a butterfly
I had of my sweet dream
confirming that I had been
to the valley that night, back
totally refreshed enforcing
that I will return again and
again renewing seminal 
wonderment of night visions

When I read the title I didn't quite know what to expect, certainly not a dreamy ode to nature. The ploy worked for me.
In all this piece hangs together well.

While up at a country cottage today I got to experience both humming birds, monarchs, fresh trout and all of the bird song I could bear to hear...so your poem is easy to feel.

VIV YOU ARE ONE OF THE BEST WHEN COMBINING BEAUTIFUL WORDS WITH BEAUTIFUL THOUGHTS!!GOD BLESS LOLHG

An albino Hummingbird is indeed rare. It is amazing energy that the Hummingbird extracts from the plant, powered only by photosynthesis from the sun. Of coarse, there is a little bit of bug catching to provide the protein for a long flight across the Gulf of Mexico.

Beautiful
