As a child I took the acorn
From where it lay
On the forest’s lawn
As by way
Of the woodland path I went
Content
In my harmless play.

Shall I take
The acorn today
And break
The shell
I know so well?
The truth forlorn
Is that many an acorn
Have I broken in play.

Another lovely image from my friend Betty Davidson. Taken somewhere in Minnesota.

I tried to get a picture of a doe in a soybean field near my home. She was happily eating away with her two fauns, and all I could see was her brown neck and head among all the green plants. It would have been a great shot because she was being lit by the setting sun. Her ears were even bigger than this deer’s. I didn’t see the fauns until I stopped and they started to run (or leap) away from me, deeper into the field.
