White Spot - Poem by David Darbyshire

One ear up, with a funny grin
Eye's wide, hair on his chin
white spot on the forehead
bridal hanging in the shed

No saddle for Maddy
she a country lady
piece of straw in her smiling mouth
headin to the lake, south

she rides straight into the water
splashing, and bobbing
she would make a lovely daughter
on that horse she does cling

Riding back up to the farm
she's singing all the day
Maddy really has some charm
Horse is laughing all the way
