Beautiful Deer copyright 2012





Our brown deer, you are so very rare,

such a beautiful creature, we all do stare.

you run about without a single care,

as a special gift of nature, so very fair.









You always feed in the dark of night.

retire by day, to the gentle shade.

your so rarely seen, most of the time

only your tracks, that you've made.









That antlered head, carried about so proud,

makes you so regal, a king out there.

With your white tail raised high in the air,

you bid us all adieu, this to share.









A thing of wonder and splendor there,

A creature of such fine mystique.

Your vibrant sighting,we all enjoy,

Helps to make your form so unique.








You are a gift of nature, that is so rare,

A sign that our creator does surely care.

Our thanks please do accept from us all,

Your presence shared for us in every Fall.







Favorite of mine,

Such a gift when we spy you.

please wait, spend some time,

We'll be happy, if you do.

They are an incredibly beautiful animal. We have quite a few of them in the city now; they live in the nearby woods, but each night you can find them roaming the streets. I like that, and I love this poem.

Thanks aviannovice, his animal is my favorite and I used to hunt for it's venison, in the woods. Now I hunt for it to just see it and appreciate it. I also paint and love to write of what I see. Times do change for the best. whonu

My salute to the buck deer, who are about to loose their antlers, until another year.

The dog and I were standing at the glass door today watching two deer in the yard. They are so pretty but rarely do we see a buck in the yard. Enjoyed your poem. Voted up.
