Here is an excerpt from a poem by Linda Hogan in honor of her birthday today:

This morning
when the chill that rises up from the ground is warmed,
the snow is melted
where the small deer slept.
See how the bodies leave their mark.
The snow reveals their paths on the hillsides,
the white overcrossing pathways into the upper meadows
where water comes forth and streams begin.
With a new snow the unseen becomes seen.
Rivers begin this way.

Linda Hogan, excerpt from “Deer Dance” from her latest poetry collection, Rounding the Human Corners
