The Fawn and The Goat


On Midsummer eve beneath the red bud tree,
a Fawn and her friends gathered for tea,


There were ribbons colored many,
candies and treats galore,


But the fawn did not know,
what Cupid had in store.


A sound caught her ear,
the chubby birds quit chirping,

Then out of the woods,
A goat came a-lurking.

With a look most puzzling,
Closer he crept,


He presented the fawn a rose,
and off her feet she was swept.


They sipped and they nibbled,
One maybe guzzled,


They danced and made merry,
while the birds sang a tune.


And as the sun set on this midsummer tea,
A goat kissed a fawn 'neath the red bud tree.





I hope you all enjoyed my tale of tea, whimsy and mushy-stuff! If you want to see the rest of the photos, or view these ones larger, you can do so by clicking here to visit the Flickr set.

Thank you to Vanessa for once more hosting a tea party most mad and delightful, please visit her at A Fanciful Twist and make merry there before visiting some of the other tea partiers!

  36. LOVE it! Kudos to your guy and all the guys who got involved in our little tales! I love that teapot, too.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I think that was the first goat-man I've ever seen! I would have been quite afraid, except he did give you that beautiful rose. And any goat that appreciates a good cup of tea can't be all that bad. The tea table with the ribbons and party fare were all a delight. Thanks for a great time!

  53. So sorry I am late
    For this important date.
    I'm still making my way down the list.

    With too little time
    I'm leaving this rhyme
    For I'm adamant about wanting to persist.

    All this running about
    Has left me dry in the mouth.
    Might I have a cup of tea?

    Your fawn and goat
    and little bird too
    are all so sweet as can be.

    Oh my, the time
    It goes so fast
    I must be on my way

    But fear not friend
    I shall return
    Please……Have a beautiful day.

    Love the ribbons on the tree- good use for the ribbons i've been hoarding for years, dont you think?
    I'm glad I found your blog again- I used to follow it back when I didnt comment or have a blog of my own!!
    Oh- and I think that's the most beautiful rose I've ever seen :) No wonder the goat won her over!

    ReplyDelete
  64. This was absolutely and utterly fantastic! I'm sorry it's taken me so long to get here my friend, it's certainly been a mad weekend. I had to go out yesterday so I'm still making my way through the party posts today. Anyway, just wanted to say that this is the best one I've come across! (And honestly, I've been through what feels like thousands.) Just brilliant. Is that your husband in the pics? If so then there's a couple there that you should really get blown up and put above the fire place :) Such wonderful photos of a wonderful party. Great stuff!

  66. I like the frolicking, leaping and rolicking -dear pagan fawn and the guzzeling goat's expression as his rose is being smelled is something to behold!
    Fabulous, magical tea party!

  69. Oh Danni, that was precious and so much fun! Don't you love a reason to play?! Your goat was charming and what a good sport! I also loved your table, very festive and how fun to come out of the woods to see that. I have also been enjoying your blog and have happily signed up as a follower. The hobbit hole cottage on your banner is charming, is this your store? If so I will be on the next flight to your area to do some shopping! Thank you for visiting my silly Mad Catter cat nip and tuna tea party, I shall keep my fingers crossed for you to win the bird's nest hat. You may have to be careful in the garden that the birds do not alight upon you head!
    Thank you again for your lovely party,
