summer haiku – the robin redbreast = le rouge-gorge

the robin redbreast
tarries where she lists *
on irised wings

* wishes




le rouge-gorge
y reste volontiers,
ses ailes irisées

minuscule comme une abeille –

The bee hummingbird is the smallest of all birds, scarcely larger than a bee.

Ce colibri, qui est le plus petit de tous les oiseaux du monde, est à peine plus grand qu’une abeille.
