I SAT THERE QUIETLY

Updated on June 23, 2011

I sat there quietly~

As the does grazed~

They sauntered~

Where they wished~

In a foggy haze.

I was as silent as possible~

As the two deer ate~

They ambled~

Across the yard~

Never going past the gate.

I moved so gently~

While they munched on last years garden~

They mosied near and than far~

I begged my pardon.

Inaudibly I listened~

To hear their gentle footsteps~

They wandered~

With a whosh and a whisk~

Ready to had lept at the slightest sound amiss.

Peacefully I waited~

For them to finish~

As the two dear strolled~

Amongst the new nights mist~

What an awesome sight to behold I hope you get the gist.

Tranquilly I enjoyed~

The bowing of their heads~

As they gracefully bent~

Nibbling they did at their very best~

By than they already were amply fed.



Amazed I was~

When they pruned the sumac tree~

Than foraging low once again~

Back to browse as the sun had gone~

All the time I thought they might fly at the least of sound.

I sat there quietly~

As the does grazed~

They sauntered~

Where they wished~

In a foggy haze.

      This made me think of being at my Grandma's in Upper Michigan. We would sit and watch the deer out of her living room window. Thanks for the memory! :-)

      We have a lot of deer in this area. I always find them gentle and almost part of the mist. This is a lovely tribute.
