MIN SCHLEPPNER, by                 Poet's Biography
First Line: Gaunt, my hope, horse-wise
Last Line: Sees!
Subject(s): Hope

Gaunt, my hope, horse-wise
He goes with wide, half-glazed eyes
That neither blink, turn aside nor blaze,
Fixed as we plough the cold haze.
Round me the ruinous light
Smothers out sight,
Surges billowing up, parts -- !
To come rolling in again -- starts
The wheel once more, a renewed weight.
But he -- high, slow, heavy of gait
