Adventure (RePosted)

Winfield, Kansas ‘neath an autumn sky,
With the man of her dreams riding high.
Her horse, called Beauty, in a four-beat walk.
A beautiful time to ride and talk.

Light wind. Light rain begins to fall.
Her new love beside her riding tall.
On a horse who responds to the call of Grace.
Beauty and Grace trot a two-beat pace.

Two different horses. Same boy and girl.
Four strong thoroughbreds out for a whirl.
She on Freedom in a three-beat cantor,
Matching pace with her new enchanter.

The enchanter gently flicks the reigns.
This moment symbolic; the adventure begins.
His horse, Adventure, at a four-beat gallop.
Four hearts race as the adventure develops.

More than forty years have passed.
The second date forever lasts.
Beauty, Grace, Freedom, Adventure,
The hallmarks of their life together.

  1. Thanks for the likes and the positive comments.
    This is in the top 5 of my favorite poems I’ve written. Many of the conversations it has sparked have revolved around… “what did the author mean by…”
    I love to hear others’ perspectives about my work, especially when they read so much more in to it than I ever even intended.
    Comments are always welcome!
