What I Call Freedom

Published by • Sep 14th, 2010 • Category: Poetry, Summer of Horse Dreams Roundup

by Martha Lee Halstead, age 13

Hooves pounding, hearts beating as one
Mane and hair entangled
Wind whispering in two faces
Discovering new places

∞∞ That is what I call freedom ∞∞

Hot horse-flesh surging beneath you
Blue sky above you
Dust kicking up behind you
The whole world ahead of you

∞∞ That is what I call freedom ∞∞
