My Black Stallion

At once captured my heart, this fiery beast
His mane, black flame, his eyes, ebony heat
As Father and I returned from the East
That night, I took him a sugary treat

Storms sunk us; we alone landed the beach
Tamed by love, he let me upon his back
He had lessons of heart and speed to teach
Rescued, we came home; trained on my old track

All the talk was of the champion's race
I entered him, despite Mother's chagrin
He claimed victory with his lightning pace
With Father, I wished I could share this win

Through the crowd, hoisting the trophy I'd earned
Walking towards me - Father had returned!

This is really wonderful, Michelle. You've really got the plot of a heartwarming, feel-good movie, here. The only obstacle to fame and fortune in Hollywood is the lack of gratuitous sex and violence. Oh, well... :) gw

Oh, this was a great picture! I want to see it again now. Your imagery is perfect, and your tribute poem wonderful. I expect to see this in the winner's circle with lights around its garland neck.
