A horse blowing, somewhere out of sight,
thub-thubity, thub-thubity of hooves
then dust and snapping twigs. A white mare
skitters through the trees and down the bank,
clatters splash-splash-splash across the ford,
gallops thub-thubity-thub-thubity
up the slope to the barn and neighs
like a steam engine coming into the station,
stands chewing, long stalk of hay dangling.
