Doe of Beauty


A deer in the yard near the woods

Doe of beauty

Surrounded by snow of white deep and bright

Standing guard of all the others

Look closely now

Ears begin to twitch

Tail flickers tall and straight

Back and forth

Warning others of friend or foe

She does not know

She must protect

The young beside her with noses buried

Searching for food

Kernels of corn carried

Keeping distance lest she dart away

Dropping load to disappear

Peeking through frosted glass shedding tear

A deer in the yard near the woods

Standing guard of all the others

Gathering to nibble cobs of golden sunken in frozen

Doe of Beauty

    • So true your words, Sue! This is exactly how these Godly creatures appear within the back of my yard. So close…I want to touch them, yet I know that is not to be. Blessed to live among nature. 🐾
