Somewhere in time's own space
There must be some sweet pastured place
Where creeks sing on and tall trees grow,
Some paradise where horses go.
For by the love that guides my pen
I know great horses live again.
Where in the wide world can we find nobility
Friendship without envy, or beauty
Here where grace is laced with muscle,
And strength by gentleness confines.
He serves without servility,
has fought without enmity.
There is nothing so powerful,
nothing less violent; Nothing as quick,
nothing more patient.
The world's past has been borne on his back.
We are his heirs; he is our inheritance.
A strange stillness dwells
In the eye of the horse,
A composure that appears
To regard the world from
A measured distance…
It is a gaze from the depths
Of a dream…
The sight of that pony did something to me
I've never quite been able to explain.
He was more than tremedous strength and speed
and beauty of motion.
He was me dreaming.
