The Horse

Horsey, horsey, let me ride,
On your back so very high;
Let us gallop, let us stride
Make me feel as though I fly.

Let me sit so proud astride
While all rushes quickly by;
Brushing cares and woes aside
Take me to the seventh sky!

Oh my pony, pretty, pied,
Come and stand beside me nigh;
Let me mount you, let me ride,
Please, my wish do satisfy…

  2. I really love the vintage picture!! I've been horseback riding at a ranch in Colorado--loved it.

  3. Great old illustration! I enjoyed the poem (song?) too.

  4. Cute verse , I love horses but dont ride them.
    When I was younger I went on a pony trek which
    was most enjoyable.
    I like the picture of the horse and rider very 1940's.
    Best wishes,
