Come, swift Arion, tonight we will ride

as you humble wind, muddle the moonlight,

I’ll gather your mane, clutch it with pride

then we’ll rewrite lore, enflame even night. 

The strength of your gait overwhelms me,

let the world bow to your timeless power

for your potent stride has calmed stormy seas

and your gallop has outraced short hours,

but daybreak will send me back to my bed, 
though you are divine, my life has seams,

I mount the mystical, wonderment led,

cantering towards the kingdom of dreams. 

Bliss, this journey of stallion and maid,

May I not waken ‘til all the stars fade. 

*Written June 4, 2013


In Greek mythology, Arion is a divinely-bred, extremely swift immortal horse. The god Poseidon sired Arion while he was in horse-form. Arion can be found the Iliad.
