Waiting patiently
I watch for movement in trees
Come on deer, come drink

Dreaming of sleeping in trees
With food all around

Nestled together

A somber face in granite
Looking far away

Before we begin our run?
No thanks, I'll sit, read

I’ve been here before
At another time and place
The feeling’s the same
