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 flies 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 raccoon 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

  1. Susie, I love your poem about nature. The pictures are so perfect too. I love to see animals and birds in nature. Hope you are feeling better and enjoying your spring days. It was 75 here today. Crazy for April. Blessings to you my dear friend, love you,xoxo, Susie

  2. I love your verses and photos. I really enjoy the bird's songs in the early morning and now I have a robin's nest on my window ledge with one blue egg. Thanks for sharing this beautiful post.

  3. Sweet poem about the animals you encounter in nature. It's always nice to come across the path of these creatures.

  4. I especially liked your post today, Susie, because I love nature so much. And the poem was sweet about all the critters that bring us joy. The deer is such a precious animal, and I haven't seen one in a long time. And the squirrels are such funny fellows to watch.

    I hope you are feeling better and enjoying these Spring days.

    love, ~Sheri
