My Cart 


White Deer
Georganna Millman


Seneca County, New York

As if summoned forth to haunt
the acres and trick my eyes
snow-blind, they hide in plain sight,
stock-still in a drift.
Beneath the coarse surface
a chord stirs,
recessive pairs go back
to unearthing
a patch of horse-mint,
grazing in a neat cross-cut the wild
randomness of this place
where winter is the first to arrive
and the last to leave.



Georganna Millman lives in the Catskill Mountains of upstate New York with her husband Marty. The mother of two grown sons, Georganna owns an independent retail pharmacy and is a grantwriter for the Woodstock Poetry Society & Festival. Her award-winning poetry has appeared in many national and regional publications and her chapbook, Formulary, won the Astounding Beauty Ruffian Press Poetry Award in 2008.
