To My Surprise

Once upon an autumn morn
must have been half past dawn,
I got out of bed and proceeded to
open the blinds like I always do...

Lo and behold to my surprise
I spotted a buck of massive size
sound asleep by my bench of stone,
curled up peacefully on his own!

Now many deer visit me
but seldom a buck do I see...
He woke up and twitched his nose,
then he noticed a slender doe...

They played catch me if you can,
back and forth and away they ran...
It made me smile from ear to ear
watching the antics of the deer.

God's simple pleasures bless my heart,
it's a lovely way for the day to start!

Christian since 1973, widowed in 2007, but by the divine appt. of God, I married a wonderful, godly widower in Oct. 2010. Three grown, married sons and eight grandchildren. My first love is Jesus who inspires my pen, for apart from Him I can do nothing! I desire to honor the Lord and edify readers thru poetry He inspires.
