A Ebony Stallion - Poem by Clayton Logan

An ebony stallion,
galloping above
the snow covered meadow,
like a bird out of its cage.

An ebony stallion,
coated with scars and wounds,
crippled,
yet with astonishing beauty,
a priceless, and mistreated gemstone.

An ebony stallion,
panting,
but not intending to turn back,
it's not fearful, it's courageous.

An ebony stallion,
racing with the time,
knowing it might be chased down and
beat,
but it has dreams to pursue.

    Great poem, I liked it a lot. Just one little thing:

    'the snow
    covered grass field, '

    These verses should be merged, I think. The stanza would flow better, then. And you could also substitute 'grass field' with meadow, or ommit 'field'. A mere suggestion ;) Again, good job with the poem.
