‘…by water among the trees
The delicate-stepping stag and his lady sigh’ —W.B. Yeats

 

November morning

A grown stag, his doe, their fawns

graze near the water

my gratitude for the challenge

of raising my family

 

 

for Jane Dougherty’s A Month with Yeats: Day Twenty-one,

Colleen’s Weekly #Poetry challenge–Thanks and Family and
