Though All Seems Lost...
(Oh Little Fawn)
November 7, 2006
Oh little fawn on cold grass dead
I'm sure you will forgive Her never
Let me touch you on your deathbed
That I may remember you forever
Oh little fawn now draw last breath
As I lay myself down sad beside you
Let me breathe in Life upon your Death
Let my hand remove all pain inside you
Oh little fawn let your last blood drain
Red to cleanse and feed the Earth
Let me be witness in this falling rain
May your last dream be of Rebirth
Oh you no longer sparkle little fawn
Your shining eyes have turned dull black
Your bright Life light may seem now gone
But in due Time this Land will bring you back
Oh little fawn - to Earth - give up your heat
While I cool down on the cold ground
Knowing Here again next year we'll meet
Though all seems lost... today you're found!
Author's Notes: Its deer hunting season here. And though it always seems kinda sad to kill such a beautiful animal, its not really --- there are so many deer here now that they are, as Leopold noted, threatening not only themselves but their habitat, and the habitat of many other species and the forests themselves, by their own too-muchness. She was ecologically correct to take a fawn for the larder today! Still it seems kinda sad... but not really... when we understand that all life is intimately connected and cycling through the land. Hunting can help better connect ourselves to the land, to time's mysteries. 'Healthy organic meat to sustain us... healthier herds to sustain themselves.... Enhancing life through measured death and full utilization. We get that, right?
