The White-Tail Cafe
   by Denise Rodgers

Welcome, my deer,
      to the White-Tail Cafe.
Because it is summer
      our menu today
has mushrooms, tomatoes
      and wildflower stew,
some tasty carrots
      we've plucked just for you.

So glad it's not winter
      when food is so stark
that all we can offer
      is four kinds of bark,
from maple and birch to
      some willow or oak.
Well, that's what we serve to
      our deerly loved folk.

It's more than a buck, but
      we hope that you'll stay
for not that much doe at
      the White-Tail Cafe.
