COME DANCE SAYS YERETTE
Way way back to days of Hyarima,
You resonate with breath of heaven,
Little jewel of the sky,
May i call you little dancer?
Flitting into my garden,
With your sword-like beak in fencing flèche,
And feet en l’air,
Such a wonderful sight you are;
You tease with your glimpse of delight,
Even Lady moon lowers her sweet coy lashes,
Sigh, sigh, you never stay long enough,
So our breaths may do a pas de deux.

Trinidad - land of the hummingbird... Yerette literally means hummingbird in the original Amerindian(Caribs and Arawaks) language. It is believed these mysterious birds, with their vibrant colors, flittering wings and aerial acrobatics, contain the souls of the local’s ancestors
The hummingbird - messenger ....of heaven He thereby connects humans with the power of God and raises them to the fifth (and next) level of human consciousness and the process of human development.
A Mayan legend says the hummingbird is actually the sun in disguise, and he is trying to court a beautiful woman, who is the moon.
contrary to popular belief, hummingbirds can walk, but they are pretty bad at it
There are two hummingbirds on The Coat of Arms of Trinidad and Tobago
