Four Horses

by Mary E. Lowd

March 8, 2021

Four horses on a grey and gloomy day,
Stop to drink some water on their way,
Shall they ride to battle?
Shall they ride to glory?

Perhaps they’ll simply wander,
Hooves sloshing marshes,
Letting their equine souls ponder,
Letting their hearts have the final say.
