Nature’s Dawn

An early warming day in June,
   Inside the oven of the sun,
The earth still blooms from Spring’s swift boon –
   Official summer not begun. 

The morning clouds from off the sea
   Sail north and give a subtle shade –
A lacy, cotton canopy –
   Behind, a peek a boo is played. 

The road pours asphalt down my hill,
   With pair of houses to the right;
While on the left, it’s verdant still –
   A somber green in morning’s light. 

As if I’ve seen grand Nature’s dawn –
   A sight that is the season’s first –
An exclamation, “There’s a fawn!”
   I spot the spotted glory burst!


The photo isn’t mine (see below) and the fawn I saw was much smaller,
only a couple of days old.  Today, as I post this, I was within ten feet
of two fawn as their mothers came up to be fed.  One of the does that
I’ve dubbed Mamacita, I can now pat on the neck.
