November Mountain Scene

November Mountain Scene

 

Deer have ventured out through thinning trees
into thickening traffic.  Men in trucks gentle them

to the breakdown lane with shovels. The last leaf’s
twisting stem is the voice of the deer in November.

    Sparse and quietly beautiful — My wife and I saw this scene repeated far too often during our years in the Ozark Mountains of Arkansas. I never got used to it.

    The irony in “Men in trucks gentle them to the breakdown lane with shovels” is too sad for words…………………….
