Daisy May-My Horse

Daisy May--My Horse-
you have
four little
hooves
no bigger than
coins-
but oh-what
you do
to the earth-

Before
I can
call you-
you're here-
you walk the
forbidding mountains-
stone and thorns-
by my side-
in the forest
you tramp through old 
growth and still water-
in the foot hills
you gallope along
unnavigable
land-
across rivers
and silent streams-
and at the hour
when the light
of the world
unravels
like a flag-
you walk
beside me-
a dauntless-
tireless
companion-
but
oh-my God
What you do
to the earth-

It seems
only yesterday
that you were
born in our fields-
opening your
eyes-
like
two 
excited stars-
two little bells-

You are a
beautiful filly- 
a vibrant life-
fragrant
and
blooming-
a firefoot-
in southern
mountains
of
British Columbia-
your heart
sings
with mine-
but oh-God
Daisy May-
What you do
to the earth-California Blue
