The Wonders Of Nature
A little deer standing by the roadside
looking back and forth, to and fro
wondering if it should run and hide
and which way it should go
A long neck crane standing in the creek
an awesome sight to see
attempting to grab food, it takes a peek
then flys away with it's large, majestic wings
A large hawk sitting in a tree
looking around for its prey
whatever that may become or be
it'll never have a chance to get away
A strange flock of birds fly in
from some place faraway and unknown
on nature's food they do depend
they're here for a time and then they're gone
A little rabbit sits in the clover
everyday it sits in the same spot
late in the evening when the day is over
I can tell by the clover it never eats alot
A large raccon visits from time to time
searching for something to eat
up the creek bank he does climb
grabs what he can and runs back to his retreat
A hoot owl makes his presence known
in my yard each and every night
he'll hoot until the break of dawn
and then return again the very next night
The squirrels are never a stranger and always there
running this way and that
hoping the birds will kindly share
each day they grow more big and fat
These wondrous sights my eyes do behold
takes my breath away and fills my heart with pride
to know that nature can be so bold
in a place where I live and abide

This is a nice poem about all the animals in nature, Susie. They are fun to watch when we see them, aren't they? Sorry to hear you are not feeling well. I hope you feel better soon and have a good weekend.ReplyDelete
Thank you Daisy. Yes they are fun to watch. I'm lucky here where I live, I get to see quite a few of them. When I wrote this one a couple of years ago I saw all of these that I wrote about in one week.Delete
Love it---and yes, there are so many wonders out there. We have raccoons visit our deck EVERY night ---cleaning up in the cracks after the birds have been there all day. I sweep --but there's always seed left just for those little critters...ReplyDelete
I fed my birds twice a day during the arctic blast... I feel so sorry for them out there in that horribly cold weather. BUT--they seem to know how to take care of themselves... That's NATURE at work.
Thanks Betsy. Those raccoons and possums love to meander in and eat the bird seed that hits the ground. We see their footprints on our back porch alot.Delete
Lovely! So sorry you have been under the weather. God bless.ReplyDelete
Thank you Mildred. God Bless you as well.Delete
Beautiful Susie! I hope you feel better soon!ReplyDelete
Thank you Beth.Delete
I feel blessed to live in an area where we can see little animals like these. Well, we don't see owls, but I do remember a screech owl which came to the light in the window at night, when I was a little girl; scared me to death!ReplyDelete
Feel better soon! Seems these "bugs" like to come around when January comes.
Thank you Charlotte. I agree..Delete
what a delight you are. I live in the city surrounded by forest and throughout the city (small one) tree are soooo many trees. We have wildlife like this even downtown.ReplyDelete
Thank you Katie. I bet that's so nice to have them in the city.Delete

I hope that you feel better.
Your work is enough to make any one smile.
Take care of yourself.

Hi Susie, I love your repost today. It is so sweet, I especially like the rabbit and the raccoon. I am so sorry to hear that you are sick again. You sure have had your fair share this winter. I hope you are feeling better and are getting your strength back. It seems like it is taking everyone a little longer to get well this season. Stay warm and have a good night's rest. With Love, Delisa :)ReplyDelete
Oh, Susie, I'm sorry. Hope you feel better soon. Your words about the various wildlife you are privileged to know so well are wonderful. Thank you for sharing!ReplyDelete
Your post today holds a special place in my heart, as I love nature so. There is a peace I feel there like no other place. Your picture of the deer, raccoon, and the squirrel are sweet. Deer are such lovely animals, and I spotted a family of them on a road trip with my husband. It was such a sight.
Have a nice week, Susie.
I absolutely love your photos of these animals. Great photos. I just love to watch the deer, wild turkeys, squirrels. We are so blessed to live in these mountains with such beautiful nature.
