Early enough

A hummingbird AND a tree full of cedar waxwings.  Who knew there would be such a reward for getting up early this morning?

I got up early enough
To witness the hummingbird
In the bee balm,
My first hummingbird
Of the year.
As if to say
See what you miss
By sleeping later
The mountain ash filled
With cedar waxwings.
Now there is one lone robin
At the very top
Of the mountain ash.
He is
Silent in the sun.
