Above There Is The Mountain

And at its foot, the summer refuge---
sanctuary in town and yards under spreading
boughs of evergreens

Beneath the mountain’s wild, they find
their forage: shrubs, wild plants and the feast
of dropped fruit spread about the ground

Those with antlers come alone

Those without bring offspring---fawns
following last year’s babes nearly grown

Late summer afternoons, they descend
like evening shadows slipping down the slopes
and fanning out within the town

By night they feed; by moon they play

How swift they are, even the smallest ones
with stripes and spots

Under moonlight, they suckle then break
for cover---like wind itself---practicing escape

Neither are claws imaginary;
real and raw are the marks
which groove some yearlings’ flanks

Quiet coming, quieter still in going,
all gather again at first light, a full herd
of phantoms ready to depart
before the sun soars above the trees

At town’s edge, the solitary bucks
begin to bound---sharp hooves pounding
respect into pliant earth

Near forest, they pause, heads high,
nostrils flaring to test the morning breeze

Hidden high beneath the mountain’s brushy
crown: a flash of eye shine gold green,
the presence sensed but rarely seen

--Peter Hensel
