Deer Magic (Sonnet)

A magical sight of wild deer in the city
Blesses our home but not often enough.
At both dawn and dusk, I have peered out our windows,
Eager to find them but meeting rebuff.
This winter is easy, so creatures don’t need us
As most of them did in the harsh cold last year;
However, tonight when we were not expecting them
Two does appeared, grazed and gazed without fear.
Smallish in body and traveling together,
The two wound their way around our fenced in yard.
We watch them in silence, not wanting to frighten
The magical beasts for whom last year was hard.
Thus magic comes when it will, all unexpected;
As long as we keep a place open, protected.
