Looking for a poem about waking up to a deer licking her face

Looking for poem that begins with the line When death comes...
Mary Oliver is probably my favourite artist....her pieces are so thought provoking and meaningful. Some bring me to tears, they are so beautiful....
Mary Oliver is such an exceptional, unique poet and she inspires me to keep writing. She's absolutely right about poetry being a way of life I have a propensity to write and must keep going. Her work is so beautiful, direct, poignant, effortless and intelligent, I often wonder, why do I bother?

Picturistic story narration through poetry that blends nature so well
In my journey of poetry, dear mary, you have inspired me a lot.
I absolutely love Mary Oliver's work. She is one of those people who stand out because of her originality and exquisite imagery. Very few poets have touched me as deeply as she has. She inspires me like a fresh breath of breeze over the literary world.
I can't begin to tell you what the work of Mary Oliver has meant to me over the last 15 years. I read and reread her poety. It touches me so deeply....her connection to nature. I wish I knew a way to contact her.
To: Mary Oliver, I love your poetry, can you join a group of nature adorers for a summer river trip through the Grand Canyon this year? Jim Silva
