The Horse


I know my math
I know the rules
I know the horses
But where's mine
I'm a country girl
And I want me a horse
Horses there and horses here
None of my own
They are so kind
They let me ride
But I'm a country girl
And I want a horse of my own
I have every thing I need
I just need one thing
And that's the horse
I said a million times
I'm a country girl
And I want a horse

    My daughter loves your poem as it sounds as if you could've written it together. We both sure hope you have a horse by now and we hope that she will have one in the coming years. Thank you for showing her that others feel as she does and also introducing her to a new love - poetry about things that she feels. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
