A Horse Story

Written by: Judy Konos

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.
