9 ACROSS, HUMMINGBIRDS

by Gary Reed

The little hummingbird fluttered
Just over the New York Times crossword
Puzzle and silently muttered.
It tried hard to think of the right word
For “Nearly Extinct Pollinators”:
One that ended in the letter “s”,
A word with exactly twelve letters.
Alas, the little bird couldn’t guess.
