Horse Power

Horse Power

Unhitching the horses,

Dad puts the reins in my hands.

The tired sweaty giants know where to go–

down the incline through the opened barbed wire gate

down the hill to water.

Blackie leads; Lady keeps pace.

A team, even when not pulling the mower,

they take me to the well.
