I hope they have horses in Heaven

Because I sure can’t ride very well now.

I’m old and stiff and too heavy

to sit high on a saddle and howl.


When I was young I ached to ride,

I dreamed and read books and sighed.

But when finally I rented a horse; travel bound,

He directed us back to his barn ‘stead of the other way around.


So I’m going to have to wait to feel that pleasure

of the horse’s speed taking me galloping down hill

The wildness inside driving him and the beauty

of the creature’s marvelous skill.
