"Wild Horse" by Hillary Allen, Age 9, Canada,


With shiny skin   
     And fiercest eye  
Clattering hoof  
    Will never die.

  From memory of mine  
     The horse (if wild)  
A creature fine  

     Who's always bright

  Yet man took horse  
     To call his own  
And broke him in  
     With reins and such.

  Man used a whip  
      Twas very coarse  
And took the life  
     From wild horse

  That proud creature     
     Jumping free!    
Is now a sad and gloomy one   
     Oh, think!  of what the man has done.

  Wild, free   
     Full of glee   
That was   
     The wild one!

 Shame on man  
     To do what's done  
Took spirit, soul, all joy as well   
     Oh--!wild horse!"
