Wild Horses

November 9, 2008
By Chelsea Maiocco, Roswell, GA

Thud, thud, thud
was the rhythmic soothing sound
as horses hooves cantered
pounded the ground

A path was worn
where these horses had been
always cantering
as the road seemingly never ends

One day
the cantering stopped
it slowed down
and became a walk

At a spring
where these horses drank
the sun which became weary
Soon behind the hills it sank

When that sun rose
to wish the horses good morning
they were back at the canter
Free and soaring

Thud, thud, thud
that sound still goes
but where it is at
nobody knows

maybe where the sun sinks
maybe by that spring
maybe on the road that never ends

But where it will always be
is in the horse-lovers heart
cantering the beat
which cannot be torn apart
