About This Poem

 

"Inhabiting both earth and sky, birds serve, in many traditions, as emissaries from the afterlife, as they do in this poem. Here, I sought to combine the science of hummingbird metabolism, the cultural history of hummingbird mythology, and the personal history I associate with the bird. The words 'visit,' 'resurrection' and 'hover' contribute to the 'otherworldly' feeling hummingbirds generate in many who observe them."
—Robin Becker
