Dear Deer (Limerick and Photo)

A month or so ago, hubby Mark took a wonderful photo of a deer just a couple of feet from our deck in Putnam Valley, New York. I’ve finally written a companion limerick for that image:

Dear Deer
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Dear deer, you’re adorable, true.
But there’s one thing about you, I rue:
Your habit of munching
And supping and lunching
On fruit my hub’s hoping to chew.

    Dear deer, you forest-y denizen
    In the suburbs, most unwelcome pest-izen
    On our lawns you encroach
    I need no longer poach
    You rekindle my penchant for venison!

    Deer looked like it was trying to be sneaky..haha

  4. Dear deer, you poor little deer,
    You’ve been captured twice, I fear
    First by Kane’s lens in Putnam Valley
    Where, near his deck ,you did sally,
    Now Madkane’s caught you with ‘er limericking gear!

    Oh you poor little Deer (Dear),
    Your days are limited I fear,
    Too near humans you got,
    You ate in their lot,
    So die you must poor little Deer (Dear)

  8. Ellen says:

    Oh Dear, Oh Dear,
    Dead you will be, I fear,
    They know where you are,
    To be hit with a car,
    So run, so you won’t be near.

    Apparently, I need a photo to be inspired. We should try that one of a walking flower. That might give some interesting limericks!! :~)

  10. This is Hometown Buffet in the Headlight kinda guy!
