THE ROAN COLT, by            
First Line: His awkward legs have not learned how
Last Line: To see a colt become a horse.
Subject(s): Animals; Horses


His awkward legs have not learned how
To ease the rhythm of a plow;
The harness on his back is not
Like anything he has been taught.

He shakes his head; his back is wet;
He pulls to pay an unknown debt;
His years of laboring begin
To earn his dole from stack and bin.

I know there is no help for it
As long as time controls the course,
But I must always grieve a bit
To see a colt become a horse.
