Pegasus 1952

Written by: Susan Raineri

He fashed before 
my eyes amazed
at twilight raced
across the sky.

His body purest red,
nostrils flared,
he tossed his head.

His crimsom wings
so grand, so wide,
I longed, I begged, 
to take a ride.

A child, with dreams
earthbound dismay,
I watched.
He pranced,
he blazed,
away...

(Flying Stallion for Mobile Gas..The electric red horse was on the side of a blimp 
that flew across the sky at evenings to advertise Mobile gasoline.  To me, this 
was a real horse)
