Somewhere In The Shadows

Somewhere in the shadows, shifting,
Midst the trees, a fleeting glimpse
I thought I saw something moving
As the mornings mist was lifting.

As the mist began to clear
A raucous echo filled the air,
'Twas a noisy, waking crow
Then I saw the grazing deer.

A gentle creature, unaware,
Enamoured I by such a scene,
In joyous rapture I looked on
It did not know that I was there.

An intruder though I felt in here
Staring at this graceful deer,
Yet it looked up and showed no fear,
Ne'er had heaven felt so near.
