“From Our Hearts With Our Hands For The Earth All The World Together”
~Richard St. Barbe Baker
The fawn trembled on legs so new and untried
A tiny fawn no more than two hours old, sighed;
awakening to the world with wide-eyed wonder.
Soft as a cloud, the fawn surrendered to the new day.
The fawn trembled on legs so new and untried,
Soon to gracefully arrive, noble astride
The ablest spirits fleet of foot. stay then away.
White stripes and spots mark the young of all white-tailed deer
press closer to its mother, abating all fear
If innocency herself should write,
Soft orange-brown coats spotted with white,
The fawn’s story would unfold
soft and sweet to behold
Is ever there an emblem of innocence so appropriate as a fawn
That my love has dawned and rose again,
There was no doubt about it, the transcendent charms
They were pretty creatures, these baby deer, gentle and meek.
A touch so keen, to wake such love of life
full of grace and timidity and cast around with beauty.
And come around those innocent great brown eyes.
the slender legs, the swinging stride
Was nought but graceful beauty personified.
In this state of innocency did I but see
Some gracious thought may be;
the fawn and doe, enveloped in care and tenderness
to follow only the prompting of innocent nature
playful and innocent, and tenderness which bound all hearts.
Oh the love that knows no end; with drops of dew,
The weary heart’s faithful friend.
Teach me more clearly of Thy life and love anew.
The Baby Deer. A Fawn so dear.
“In the wealth of the woods since the world began
The trees have offered their gifts to man.”~Henry Van Dyke

Our task must be to free ourselves … by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty.~Albert Einstein
“This generation may either be the last to exist in any semblance of a civilised world or that it will be the first to have the vision, the bearing and the greatness to say, ‘I will have nothing to do with this destruction of life, I will play no part in this devastation of the land, I am determined to live and work for peaceful construction for I am morally responsible for the world of today and the generations of tomorrow.’” ~ Richard St Barbe Baker
“Man has lost his way in the jungle of chemistry and engineering and will have to retrace his steps, however painful this may be. He will have to discover where he went wrong and make his peace with nature. In so doing, perhaps he may be able to recapture the rhythm of life and the love of the simple things of life, which will be an ever-unfolding joy to him.” ~ Richard St. Barbe Baker
