All In Green My Love Went Riding - Poem by Ryan C. Walker

All in green my love went riding, four lean hounds
crouched low and smiling; riding upon a great gold
horse into the silver dawn. She ventured far ahead, an amazon
princess, flanking four lean hounds; my love struck the path.
She wished to rid herself of me. All in green
my love kept riding, without me; into the silver dawn.
Till I heard the whine of a horse and the bark of the hounds.
I abandoned all caution, raced atop the high peaks
into the silver sawn, to find the Golden Horse
with no rider. Four lean hounds, crouched low and silent
Where a motionless figure lay on the path;
All in green, my heart fell dead before.

Fans of Cummings may recognize this one, and I've always wanted to play with my rendition of 'All in Green'

    Two lines short of a sonnet. I'll bet you could write a sonnet if you tried. Read mine -Sonnet Beyond Love -
