DPF / Ryan

PIA: from June 27, 2016.

For those unexpected visitors, forest animals and rhymes when you least expect them, from The Best of It.

from Deer / by Kay Ryan

To lure a single swivel ear,
one tentative twig of a leg,
or a nervous tail here,
is to mark this place
as the emperor’s park,
rife, I say rife, with deer.
