A Horse's Prayer

Feed me, water and care for me,
and when the day's work is done,
provide me with a shelter,
a clean dry stall large enough
for me to lie down in comfort.
Talk to me, your voice often means
as much to me as the reins.
Pet me sometime that I may serve you
more gladly and learn to love you.
Shoe me properly that I may
serve you in comfort.

Never strike, beat, or kick me
when I don't understand what you want,
but give me the chance to understand you.
And finally oh master,
when my youthful strength is gone
do not turn me out to starve or freeze,
or sell me to some cruel owner
to be slowly tortured or stoned to death,
but do thou, my master,
take my life in the kindest way, and
your God will reward you here and hereafter.

You will not consider me irreverent if I ask this
in the name of Him who was born in a stable...


I Saw a Child

I saw a child who couldn't walk,
sit on a horse, laugh and talk,
Then ride through a field of daisies
and yet could not walk unaided.

I saw a child no legs below,
sit on a horse and make it go,
Through wood of green and places he had never been.
To sit and stare except from chair.

I saw a child who could only crawl,
Mount a horse and sit up tall;
Then put it through degrees' of paces
And laugh at wonder in our faces.

I saw a child born into strife,
Take up and hold the reins of life
and that same child was heard to say,
Thank God for showing me the way!
