With the onset of Autumn many of nature’s creatures are and will be looking for sustenance to survive the winter’s long duration. I invite your comments..
Have a superb weekend everyone,
Visitors On The Lawn
Oh, they came again today
and grazed upon my lawn.
Yes, they came again today,
the buck, the doe, the fawn.
He, with antlers full
majestic, tall and proud.
And she, with maternal instinct
chastised the fawn, aloud.
Content they were in morning’s light
with the dew still on the ground
seeming almost joyful
with the treats that they had found.
They fed upon the berries
and the salt-lick on a knot.
And when they come tomorrow
that’s when I’ll take the shot!
