Watching a Doe and Her Fawn, by Jim Farfaglia
Ears are tops in importance.
Necks rotate with commanding range.
Eyes reflect a life in the wild.
A coat of fur carries history.
Living many years makes one wise.
Living few can lead one astray –
but a mother always knows best
and need not make a sound to say so.
