Parham Deer

by Jem Croucher

Parham House was closed today
and the deer they knew it well
For they were out and evident
and contented, you could tell
Grazing ‘neath the leafy oaks
in groups and sometimes more
It was quite magical to see
and well worth coming for

With no-one else about but us
the Sussex countryside
exuded quiet and peacefulness
in which you could confide
And certainly the herd of deer
were confident that they
had the place ‘most to themselves
on this quiet late summer day
