as i went home on the old wood road
with my basket and lesson book
a deer came out of the tall trees
and down to drink at the brook

twilight was all about us
twilight and tree on tree
i LOOKED STRAIGHT INTO ITS GREAT STRange eyes
and the deer looked back at me

beautiful brown and unafraid ,
those eyes returned my stare
and something with neither sound nor name
passed between us there

something i shall not forget
still and shy and wise
in the dimness of the woods
from a pair of gold specked eyes
niv tank

I love ?? the poem
