Me and Mckenzie horse, 2017

I tried all the painted horses going round- round, with the carousel music . . . a sweet sound; in time, I was given my own real horse to ride, but painted horses rode by my side. _______________________________ April 21, 2020 Poetry/Rhyme/As a Child Copyright Protected, ID 18-1245-423-01 All Rights Reserved, 2018, Constance La France Excerpt from my poem, The Painted Horses, 3/18/20 Written for the Premier contest, Rithimus Divisa 3 sponsor, Gregory R Barden Third Place

This is a wonderful stanza taken from a beautiful write. I also read both of your Painted Horses Leaping poems and found them delightful.

A sincere congratulations on your 3rd Place win in the Rithimus Divisa 3 Poetry Contest, Constance - this was such a tough one to judge, with so many wonderful writes, that it came down to small things in the end. Many kind thanks for submitting, and especially for your patience - this is a gem to be proud of! Blessings, My Friend! - the bard

A lovely poem Constance--enjoyed the tone of it and how it turns in the last two lines.
