All That Glitters

She had travelled for miles,
thousands to get to the land
where she was born.
Her wings were holding
out the last few yards
like the others that flew with her.

They spotted a golden glow
and thinking it was food
flew down to see.
She was so hungry.

It was a golden face with eyes
watching her as she alighted.
Her tongue started to probe
for sweet golden nectar.

Feeling disheartened
she had to move on.
