The young horse was walked to the field
Where four horses already stood,
Three in a group
And one watching the road.
The halter on the youth was removed,
A leg kicked out into the new freedom…
And a short gambol followed.
The three grazers
Raised their heads briefly in hello,
And the watcher watched.
Soon all of them were standing together,
Heads down into the bright green goodness of this world.
