(The Archer)

Hark! What wind doth blow in yonder forest
Stirring the spirit of a long dead archer
In his endless search for the unwary doe
He stealthily lifts his bow – aiming hurriedly
His shot misses – his prey flees – frightened 
Alas! He trudges onward – eyes peering intently
A huge buck with antlers like a tree
Suddenly looms on the horizon
He sniffs – testing the wind for signs
Is danger lurking near
The twang of the bowstring alerts his keen senses
He pivots swiftly – his white tail flashing
He bounds away – snorting contemptuously
The archer – stirred by the wind – is seeking still

    Ah, but the poet did not. Loved the mystery. George

    If a hunter comes home carrying mushrooms- you do not ask him how the hunting went!

    I like it very much. The last sentence really makes the wind come into play for the title of it. It's a non traditional sonnet in that it is not rhyming, so I am not sure if the judge needs it rhymed or not. anyway, thanks for letting me know it was here, Curtis.
