Amidst afternoon rest
and attempts of keeping cool,
the Chickens clucked,
aware of an intruder.
Resting and attempting
to keep cool in the house,
the Humans raised watchful eyes.
From her Window,
Melanie noted a Fawn in the garden,
outside the fence.
Naps were interrupted,
as the Humans headed
quietly to the East Deck.
The Fawn danced away,
with tail and head barely visible
above Meadow Grasses and Flowers
on the way to the Woods.
The Humans smiled
at what could have been a dream.
Then they went back to their naps.
Chickens returned to rest too.
