Ode To Horsechild - Poem by Garry Gottfriedson

In the moon when horses shed
Don't be afraid
To close your eyes
Magic is one song away
Two painted horses stomp dance
In a field where rain settles dust
Thunder hooves gallop
To hand drum songs
At dawn, the red pararie sky shakes
Hands with Old Man Sun
Reaching over blue mountains
At dusk, time has no pity
Wild roses wait
For the moon
