PITCH BLACK AND FEISTY

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?
