It's a sad, sad day

It's a sad, sad day
As I watch these deer cross my yard
And disappear in the woods
For in the background is the news:
Twisters and fires nearby,
Earthquake in China, cyclone in Myanmar,
Volcanic eruption in Peru...
Incomprehensible but true.

It's a sad, sad day
As I watch these deer cross my yard
Unaware of my presence
Of whatever danger I might bring
If I were a deer hunter...

It's a sad, sad day
As I watch these deer cross my yard
They, too, never know what nature brings
Until it comes their way.

It's a sad, sad day...
