Juniper


This morning I followed the deer's winter trail through the woods.  I tried to step where the deer had placed their hooves, but the snow had hardened into a deep rut, and I almost lost my balance a few times.  The deer have used this trail extensively, and they have left a lot of fertilizer behind for the woodland plants.  I noticed, too, that they have also bedded down beside the trail to rest and chew their cud.  When I finally had made it almost as far as the house again, I saw the juniper branch and the sunbeam.
