Bright and wild they grow
raising petals to the sun
dotting mountain sides
where game graze and run
through green fields of early dew
and nature thrives where abides
all things living, old and new.
It is a place where deer roam
the peaks on which the mountain stands;
Deercrest, a place we call, ‘home.’
Footnotes: Deercrest is the name we gave our four-acre lot of mountain property located 32 miles northwest of Fort Collins, Colorado in a mountain resort community called Glacier View Meadows. We have had our property there for over twenty years now and though we live in Loveland this is our other ‘home’ where we love to get away, and enjoy the quiet and peaceful mountain air and rugged, natural environment.
