I like this Poem :-

 

The Hooves of the Horses

 

The hooves of the horses - O' Witching and Sweet,

is the music earth steals from the iron-shod feet;

No whisper of lover, no trilling of bird,

Can stir me as hooves of the horses have stirred.

 

They spurn disappointment and trample despair,

and drown with their drum beats the challenge of care,

With scarlet and silk for their banners above,

they are swifter than fortune and sweeter than love.

 

On the wings of the morning they gather and fly,

In the hush of the night-time I hear them go by-

The horses of memory thundering through

With flashing white fetlocks all wet with the dew.

 

When you lay me to slumber no spot you can choose,

but will ring to the rhythm of galloping shoes,

and under the daisies no grave be so deep

but the hooves of the horses shall sound in my sleep.

 

-Will H. Ogilvie from Galloping
