The wide-eyed yearling
leaped the stone wall to deep woods—
my heart sailed with her.

Really nice. Says so much to an old fool like wot i am who can't even look at a stone wall no more let alone jump one.

Not to worry Larry.  The poem  can be read as is, or as metaphor--readers choice.  Thanks for the comment.

So very well done.
 — PaleHorse

Haiku about nature, how unusual to find that here!  This is good, it has a very strong finish.  Little saying much.
