The Stardust Cowgirl - Poem by Alexander Downie
She looked down at me from her willing white pony,
her Tennessee eyes delved for rescue, waiting, tempting me to run away.
A Lakota Mustang's white shield my only defence against those dark pools,
pools of lost dreams, pools of hidden desires, pools of sorrows past.
She tightened her reins, 'and where will you run free on this crisp Autumn morning'?
'To a place where the clouds kiss mountain tops and creeks roll calm and clean,
to a place where I can carve out a loyal lover's embrace from a giant red oak'.
Kicking her pony forward a West wind whispered, 'follow-on and I will rescue you'.
