This poem beautifully describes an encounter with a deer in the wild. It brings back memories of when we lived in the woods… Enjoy!
Among the trees, damp moss and peat in Lakeland autumn mists
Two deer stood startled statue still in one of natures trysts
I only dared to breathe; I froze and dare not blink,
And from their unsure faces, I was unsure what to think
