My Molly May
I had a little pony
I called her Molly May
So often I would venture out
And feed her bales of hay.
So then she’d frolic
Kick her heels up high
Round and round she would run
Looking sweet as she passed by.
She’d run until she was worn out
Then to the stable she would go
I’d bed her down then for the night
My love for her each day would grow
She was my, cutest Molly may
This pony always made my day.

O for the skills to calm a flighty horse.
Compact its trombone limbs with reins and legs.
Exact perfection without noticeable force,
all trouble and delight that beauty begs.
One horse, one rider, indivisible;
sky-born with earth-bound duty to endorse.
Control from legs and seat must be invisible,
obeying smooth transitions on the course.
Struck by awe, crowds watch, as in a trance
a pleasure trip controlled by aids precise.
Such liveliness contained in equine dance,
by what divine device - this Paradise?
Each discipline involved must scarce be seen.
Before our eyes must seem a floating dream.
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.
