Spotted Mule
Wall Stalls & Tail Alerts
Hoof prints cutting into the trail,
Bonding of human & equine are frail.
With out stretched arms, crooked and bent,
The Brambles and bushes creek and vent.
Where only whispering echoes elude,
Contentment and solitude protrude.
Regardless of Present, Future or Past,
Hope and dreams make memories last.
