Best Poem of Ariel

Horse’s Song

Beauty, beauty
In the eye;
Hold me tight
Or you will die.

I gallop in the meadow,
I gallop around the seas,
And all the prettiest gals
Couldn’t catch me.

Over rocks
And under trees,
Girls with socks
Chased me

(1977)

A Bout Rimes

The translation of this name depends on the variation of spelling one uses - roughly it means 'new' 'Ice Age' 'hoarfrost'. ****************************************************************************

I followed in behind the stragglers.
Waited for the glasses to clink.
Ignored my neighbor’s vulgar
Joke; I remember reading

That geese do not necessarily land at sundown,
Late arrivals can increase their numbers.

[Hata Bildir]
