As dappled sunlight streams below –
Watchful hart and nurturing doe
A newborn fawn
As fresh as dawn
They guard – then onward go
Colleen has challenged us to write a syllabic poem of our own choice of theme and form. I am using the Welsh clogyrnach form with its 8/8/4/4/6 syllable and aabba rhyme scheme. My inspiration ran backwards, as the poem wrote itself, and then I looked for a suitable illustration. It is not perfect as it doesn’t include the stag, but it think it does capture the feel of the poem.
