The Mustang

Mustangby IllinoisCowgirl, age 9

We are swift and strong
Free and majestic
Our manes and tails blow in the wind
Our hearts are wild
We roam in herds
Our lead stallion protects us from danger
We fight for grazing lands
People want to take us away from our homes
To lock us in cages
We live in the rolling hills of the Old West
We frolic and gallop on the open range
We our free from cages
Free from fences and barns
We leap with the antelope
And soar with the eagle
We are the Mustang

  1. “We live in the rolling hills of the Old West / We frolic and gallop on the open range” those are my favorite lines! Brilliant work, IllinoisCowgirl! And you’re only 9? That’s a great poem for a 9-year-old. Keep up your brilliant work… great job, GHC girls, on the March For The Wild Mustangs poetry and stories. Let’s keep up the magnificent work! =D

  2. Powerful and truthful. I like the way your poem was set from the Mustangs’ point of view, and the way you discribed how they live. Very nicely done, great job! :)
