The Racetrack - Poem by Elisa Tanquist

The thrill of the sport
The horses running down the course
The group assembled like a fort
The wonder of the horse

The dirt flying high
The hooves beating the ground
While they quickly flash by
Oh, that wonderful sound

The jockeys start to tire
The race comes to a close
When they flash under the wire
Who won? No one knows!
