Pegasus

 

(To Shanie - my daughter)

Do you know?
Last night I dreamt
I was a princess
riding away
on my horse

on the road
to my prince

We were flying across the fields
The wind was blowing
through his mane
and my veil

Do you know?
Today I saw
a horse
standing in a field
eating
straws

I would've loved to
caress him
