Wild Horses

Here's a time honoured expression Wild horses couldn't keep me away Methinks that's pretty much a fallacy Their power is an awesome display Wild horses are majestic animals Roaming free o'er the plains of Nevada Manes flowing, hoofs a-pounding They perform their lively cantata Aristocrats of the animal kingdom Called Mustangs in the U.S.A. In Australia they're known as Brumbies Each performs an equine ballet Reclusive high-spirited stately stallions Reside on a huge open range This pompous and regal force of nature A beauty that resists being tamed © Jack Ellison 2012

    I like watching horses myself. They really are majestic. I like the rhymes in this poem and the way it brings horses to mind. Good job on the last line; it sums the poem up well.

    This is a good poem about wild horses. I have never seen a real life wild horse, only in movies. They are beautiful creatures. Thanks for sharing. Lucilla

    Saw some a them critters last winter while hanging out in that Mojave desert. The desert doesn't much cotton to taming either. If you get bored, google Marta Becket - great story (always thought I'd write a poem about her). This amazing lady was a friend of the horses in that neighborhood and had her own herd, or rather, they had her. Enjoyed this write Jack!

    Looked her up... this was her short bio on Google. Will definitely read more. Thanks for the heads-up my friend. "Marta Becket is an actress, dancer, choreographer and painter who performed for more than four decades at her own theater, the Amargosa Opera House in Death Valley Junction, California." Cheers, Jack

    I had to choose this one to read, all because of my love of horses. Even though I haven't had much personal dealings with them, I am amazed by their strenth, beauty and gracefulness. Your poem brings vivid images of these wonderful creatures, Jack. Thanks for the visit. I pray you're doing well. Always, Annalise

    Loved this. My Grandmother was called Pecos. she lived on the Pecos River. They said she could ride anything. My dad worked summers on the ranch. He said if you told those work ponies to giddy up... They'd hunker down and explode out from under you. You had to be a good rider to stay on asthey worked the cattle... I had 3 horses during my life. One lived to 32 1/2 years old.... And she was the onery one... L.O.V.E those horses as much as I love your poetry! LOL Both are wild things... Snicker.
