Mike's Meadow Muffin for May 29, 2006

Two Days Old

Only two days before

she first struggled to stand,

on legs so impossibly long...

so wobbly and knobbly,

it's hard to believe , how quick they become,

straight and strong.

Now she knows how to run,

she can buck, kick and wheel.

race circles and stop on a dime.

Stick a nose in mom's flank,

and take on enough fuel,

to do the whole trip one more time.

She's just two days old,

still finding her legs,

in a meadow, way out in the west.

She's learning the joy,

of drinking the wind,

'cause running's what horses do best!
