When the world practises Tao,
horses fertilize the fields.
When the world ignores Tao,
horses are bred for war.
The Tao Te Ching of Lao Tzu
Lest We Forget the Horses
Time speaks of history
a vast and empty sadness
washes over me
watching old newsreels
gentle eyes transformed in fear
under men that could not yield
Amid the noise of cannons
their beauty- gently haunting
Spirited, obedient, valiant
they charge over the
Now the faded image shows
a glory past and gone
Yet we must remember them
And how their courage shone
Sides flecked with foam, obedient spirits,
so far from home, hoofbeats pound,
crested necks, high dancing steps,
with jingling bridles they rush as one,
hearts bursting, falling in their stride,
somehow they know how desperate
is this final, fatal charge
Faded film of ages gone
Lest we forget the horses
or the majesty of them
Lest we forget them
or the men who spurred them on
In solemn re-enactment
we must remember them.
