Fawns and Simpler Things

Posted on

 

 

I am your Spring

Spindly, unspoken

Mending your dreams

Faded and broken

 

Sweet woodland grasses

Kissed by the sun

Nurture my soul

Teach me to run

 

Delve in my eyes

Of nature’s unknown

I hold your heart

I am your home

  8. Like Lillian,I’m peering through gray cumulous belly dancers, & sheets of Spring spittle. Your lovely poem, yes, putting me in mind of the Romantic poets from a gentler time, sprouts smile & hope midst precipitation & darkness,

  9. That is so lovely Mish! I love the rhymes, especially in the first stanza.
    There were deer in our garden today, eating the grass and shrubs, if you please! When I went to hang out the washing, they were just outside the back door, They ran off behind the shed. One came back later but disappeared when it started to rain.

  11. Thank you for this amazing prompt and this poem! This is such a beautiful and peaceful poem. We frequently have deer in our yard and sometimes we get to see a fawn in the spring. I love the line “I am your spring”. Perfection. Gentle, full of new life….

  19. There are few things quite as spring like as a fawn. You capture the grace and shyness beautifully.

  20. Nature is our home, so true; I’ve seen quite a few new fawns and their mothers about this spring..as many as 7 grazing at a time and they disappear into nowhere. Lovely poem.
