Pegasus

 With wings to soar, his hooves brought thunder
 From the blood of Medusa* the winged horse  was spawned 
Pegasus, the mythical equine wonder

 His father was said to be Poseidon
By the sword of Perseus*  his mother, Medusa,  lost her head 
From  the blood of Medusa the winged horse  was spawned

His brother Chrysaor was also born as  she bled
Pegasus was tamed using the magic bridle of Athena*
By the sword of Perseus his mother  Medusa lost her head

He was ridden into battle to slay the Chimera*
 Pegasus possessed wings to fly like a dove 
Pegasus was tamed using the magic bridle of Athena

 His constellation can be seen in the skies above
As he continues his celestial flight
Pegasus had wings to fly like a dove

You can see him on any given night 
With wings to soar his hooves brought thunder
As he continues his celestial flight
Pegasus,  the mythical equine wonder
                                    ~~

Athena* ---     Daughter of Zeus, goddess of wisdom, arts and justice
Chimera* ---   A fire breathing monster with a lion's head, a goat's body  
                        and a serpents tail
Medusa* ---  A gorgon, her gaze turned whoever she looked  upon to stone
Perseus* ---  Son of Zeus,
Poseidon* ---  god of the sea, god of horses,
