A Horse Story

This a story of many horses 
viewed in the eyes of a child
as she stood there gasping 
at the death wagon, a while.

All were frozen from the cold
as the memory does unfold
in the dead of winter, no cover
ponies and mules tried to hover

Oh what she would have given 
to have owned one beauty there
And from this horror learned,
To forgive those who didn't care.

    A lot of Judy's poems have underlying themes, such as this one pointing out that while togetherness is important to our social security, sometimes it requires a little bit more for things to work out. Love my horses, and I surely can testify to the fact that there never was a horse that can't be rode, and never was a man who can't be throwed. I been throwed a time or two. LOL Nice work, Judy.

    I love the line "to forgive people who didn't care"..if only we could all learn that, a great lesson you've taught through your poetry Judy, thank you
