If He Had Been Younger - Poem by Terry Dawson

Beneath a fine hat
That is fit for a queen
She rides a her horse bareback
Like a girl in a dream.
An old farmer wonders
As to what may have been
If he had been younger
When she was sixteen!

With youthful abandon
Her wild beauty shines
Like radiant sunlight
On fruit heavy vines.
The omens unhelpful
As good sense opines
The filly is prancing;
The stallion declines!
