zoey snuggled deeper in 

to the warmth 

of samuel's cradling arms


sighed and counted blessings

the little ones

were asleep   the moon was showing


through high wispy clouds

in the distance

a doe warned off a pestering coyote 


with a series of resonate coughs

she has a little one

herself   zoey thought   and settled in


to sleep and dream of such things

as full bellies and blue sky

Lovely and quiet. Nicely done. I like especially the detail of the doe coughing. Iíve never heard that sound, but given the limited range of doe sound possibilities, it makes sense to me as something loud enough and harsh enough to warn you to stay away. Thank you.

Very nice, I think. The writing is excellent and I like the poem's gentle spirit. It feels a bit like a lullaby, which is very good in my book.
