I dedicate this piece to Kathy — she told me today, she’s saving to buy her first horse. :)) Kathy, your horse awaits you. Dream on!
When You Wish Upon a Horse
She who awaits the perfect horse,
Knows it’s a matter of time, of course —
All life begins with desire,
Working strange Magic to set Souls on fire.
Your horse exists now, as surely you do —
It’s just a matter of time before your Dream will come true.
Hold onto your passion, look up to the stars,
Dream your horse Dreams, it’s really not far.
Horses have powers much bigger than you,
They knock on the heartstrings of only a few.
It’s hard to conceive, but believe me in this —
The horse will be yours when your Spirit persists
In holding your Dream with all that you’ve got,
When your love for horses is a true love so hot
That nothing will chill it — not let-downs or doubt —
Your horse is good as yours, and will truly come about.
So talk to your horse — as he already exists —
There is a strange, wonderful power in this.
Pray and let Heaven take over the task —
It may take some time — but you’ll find her at last.
Then comes the real task, the learning to speak
The language of horses, the strong verses meek.
Read all that you can to prepare for the day
When you add to your budget the expense of the hay.
Learn all about horses while you now have the time.
And rejoice in the friendship you surely will find.
For Life has its challenges, the good and the bad,
Yet your horse will help you through sweet times and sad.
As Creatures of Magic — truly you’ll see —
Your horse will help mold you into what you will be!
