TAKE HER, BREAK HER, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Ah tell me why you turn and fly
Last Line: To mount the car and manage thee.
Alternate Author Name(s): Anakreon; Anacreontea
Subject(s): Animals; Horses


AH tell me why you turn and fly,
My little Thracian filly shy?
Why turn askance
That cruel glance,
And think that such a dunce am I?

O I am blest with ample wit
To fix the bridle and the bit,
And make thee bend
Each turning-end
In harness all the course of it.

But now 'tis yet the meadow free
And frisking it with merry glee;
The master yet
Has not been met
To mount the car and manage thee.
