Analysis of The Doe.
She stood rock still, staring straight back,
across an open field, of verdant green grass.
Russet brown, with her Doe- eyed fear,
her instinct to flee, would soon pass.
She did not flinch, poised ready,
silent, in the minutes, of a hot summers day.
Then suddenly she took off, like a gazelle,
full speed, streaking across, far away.
