Miracle At The Pond

Miracle At The Pond

A Poem by Earl Schumacker

Hunter and hunted out for a drink


Miracle At The Pond

Drink deep the gathering dawn
The pond is a stone throw away
Over a cold road twisting narrow
Turned muddy by mixing rain
Fawns must bow before they drink
Genuflect in genuine reverence
Reflect nature on clear water
Mirror the surface of all things
Be clever beyond all imaginings
There where life cuts like a knife 
Deer jump over brier to escape
Arrows miss and hunters go hungry
But the pond reaches out to refresh
Including those who missed their mark today
Let us prey
