Way back when…



 Stood proud, yet humbly begging

An apple she would eat!

It was the orchard I stood in

She whinnied for her treat!



Well, of course, I took her one!

All alone in that that field!

Ten acres of fine clover!

But desire not concealed!



An apple she hungered for!

So an apple she got!

Ate from the palm of my hand,

Yet, another she sought!



Of course, her wish was granted!

Could have kept that up all day!

But this black beauty was built for

A ride, I had to say!



I had fed her apples daily

For so many a moon!

I just know that I would ride her,

And that was very soon!



The day came to steal that ride!

No saddle, of course!

No halter to hang on to!

A freedom loving horse!



I climbed the fence, leaped on her back!

Believe me!  We were off!

Her shoeless hooves, like, thundered!

A smooth ride, do not scoff!



A smoother ride could not imagine!

But then her evil mind,

(As the fence drew closer fast)

Revealed and I defined–



Her purpose, a sudden halt!

To carry me over,

Opposite fence into the next

Fine field of clover!



Did not happen!  Lifted my leg over flying mane,

Dropped to the ground as she stopped, I hastened to retain,

Attention as I leaned against her foreleg and decried

Her natural ineptitude, to by my rules abide!



She then assured me that it would never happen again!

I, trusting, rode her back to the orchard and then

Fed her several hand-picked apples, hand fed, of course.

But cannot remember after then what happened to that horse!



Memory fondly exacting, a happy love affair!

I wonder when Heaven’s gates I storm, will my favorite horse be there?
