These are some poems that I have written about Warlock, a sweet white Arabian at my stable.
The horse of my heart
He's the sweetest thing you'd ever meet,
Handsome from his head to his feet
And four years we've been through
The horse of my heart, it shall be you!
Your snow white coat is as soft as sheep's fleece
Your black pretty eyes become alive like baking yeast
Your soft hoof beats leave prints in the dust
And my love for you shall never rust.
Thank you for being such an awesome friend.
Thank you for being there when I needed you most.
Thank you for giving me courage when I didn't have it.
Thank you for showing me what we really could do.
Thank you for making me smile
Thank you for staying by my side.
And thank you for showing me to never give up.
All the carrots in the world can never repay what you have done for me.
Here is a poem about a horse called Dusty who sadly passed away Three years ago.
In memory of Dusty,
My love never went rusty
You live in my heart forever
With Warlock together.
You were swifter than a dove
But now are above
In God's green pastures
Young and free, you'll be.
Your long black mane
Your sleek bay coat
Your deep brown eyes
N' you race across the skies.
I still miss every part
It was so hard to laugh
But you left hoof prints in my heart,
And with that I'll never part.
Your not the only one I've lost
My path they've crossed
I miss them all
But I'll never forget you all.
I still remember your trust for me
Your pretty face, let it be,
Your showy bay coat
I still remember, as I spoke
I remember when you galloped across the field
Your long mane rippling
Your tail, the flag of freedom
I remember, I remember.
I remember our last ride
We never knew
Knew it was so close
We didn't have a clue
We were as close as glue
A lovely horse you were, true!
Now you race across a sky so blue
Bit I still miss you
Sometimes I see your happy face
You move with such grace
In my thoughts you gallop past
Here on earth you were just as fast
Dusty, you are dearly missed
You are on my 'great horses list'
This poem could go on forever
But I must put it together
Now I really know that:
Good friends are hard to find,
Harder to leave
And impossible to forget.
Dear Dusty you are one of those friends
You won't ever be forgotten
And I'll say one more good bye.
It was hard for me to take,
You going away,
Those three years ago...
The other riders we mayn't outdo,
But don't worry there's next time to
In dressage our best we'll do
And show jumping we'll do too.
Then its win or lose
Ribbon or not,
Our best we did
That's all we can do.
At the end of the day
Your effort I cannot repay
I whisper: thank you.
Cause a busy day went through
And I did my best with you,
So thank you.
