Of Fawn And Fairy

Inside this forest so bright and mild a fairy lived her name, Wonder Child For all the forest knew of this girl to which they knew she would change the world A fawn she crept upon one day it sensed no danger no need to escape Her acquired ability to speak with those on four legs with fur scurrying would go She was as a spirit in the woods she did walk she would talk to the animals to her they would flock She'd gentle reach down and with the smallest of hands much like the grains of sand beside them she'd stand Together as one the fairy and fawn if you close your eyes tight you may see them at dawn Donna G Fowler 8/7/06 by Donna G Fowler Review: "I have seen the fawn wake up at dawn... and then she did not tarry. This tiny deer so full of cheer set out to find the fairy. She knew that the winged one would help her through the day and with the sun at end of day would quietly slip away. But fawns grow into beautiful deer and time just passes on. Now the mother deer, it is so clear, seeks the fairy to teach her own." Donna, I hope you don't think I am presumptuous to think this would improve on your beautiful poem... No, It is just an example of how perfection can trigger creativity in the least of us... You have my honest admiration and respect for this and many other fine works in your portfolio... Love Ya! Jake Reviewed by jakepayne Your review received: Very helpful and the following comments about your review: TY Jake. I admire your wit. What I'd like to see you do is write a continuation of this like you have started. Name it whatever you want, and post me back a message Mother Doe and Fairy Inspired by Donna G. Fowler’s ‘Of Fawn and Fairy’ I saw the fawn wake up at dawn... and then she did not tarry. This tiny deer so full of cheer set out to find the fairy. She knew that the winged one would teach her the right ways and with the sun at end of day would quietly slip away. Fawns grow into beautiful deer as time just passes on. Now the mother deer, it is so clear, seeks the fairy to teach her own. The fairy knew her language and all the others too. She had tutored many youngsters in the proper things to do. The forest had been good to her and the years had been kind too. When the Doe felt life within her she knew just what to do. She knew just where the fairy should be each and every day. She wanted her to teach her fawn to live the forest’s way. The mother doe was nearing the birth of her first fawn. She arrived there at the clearing just at break of dawn. She sensed the fairy knew -- for she felt her presence there. The comfort she had sought to find Could be felt in the morning air. She lay down in the comfort of a nearby grove of trees And quietly awaited there in the cooling morning breeze. Then she heard the quiet flutter Of tiny little wings She saw the fairy coming as the birds began to sing. She now relaxed and soon she knew the peace the forest sends And she found herself surrounded by scores of tiny friends. They all had heard the news and all had been invited To come and see the miracle of two friends reunited. The fairy knew why she’d been called to this very special place She was here to help the deer receive God’s special grace. It was not long – it had begun And quickly, it was over. There lay the mother doe and fawn in the comfort of the clover. The fairy then took stardust and sprinkled it in their eyes. Now when they exchange gazes their love is not disguised. The fairy and the doe and fawn then went their separate way knowing this would not be the last of many special days. © Jacob Payne October 20, 2006 Review: Jake, I knew you could continue this after what you placed in my review. First I am honored that you were inspired by something I started. Secondly, this is an amazing continuation of my poem. You are so visual in this and I could see the field of clover and the new baby fawn. I felt as if I were there watching. Fantastic job my friend.. I'm so excited!!!! Reviewed by Donna G Fowler

I love fantasy poems such as this one, they take us away to another world! Very well written!...The first poem I posted here was "A Fairy's Fantasy", you might enjoy it...I thought it was interesting that another poet helped in writing this. I am currently working on a poem with Isaiah Zerbst, for the "Team Work" contest.

It's really something special when another poet can continue on the journey that someone else started. The images of fantasy and nature are convincing enough to make me feel like I'm really there, listening in on the conversation of the doe and fairy. You two work well together, I enjoyed being invited onto this poetic journey with you guys :)

This is something that evolved some time ago as two poets interacted on another, now non-existant site. I was priveleged to be one of them..... Read and see how powerfully we can inspire each other.... Jake
