I shall wear diamonds ....And a wide brimmed straw hat ...|
With silver and leather on it
And I shall spend my social security on white wine and carrots
And sit in the alley of my barn and listen to my horses breathe.
I will sneak out in the middle of a summer's night
And ride the sorrel colt across the moonstruck meadow
If my old bones will allow . . . And when people come to call I will smile and nod
As I walk them past the gardens to the barn
And show, instead, the beauty growing here
In stalls fresh-lined with straw . . .I will shovel and sweat and
Wear hay in my hair as if it were a Jewel.
And I will be an embarrassment to all who look down on me
Who have not yet found the peace in being free to love a horse as a friend,
A friend who waits at midnight hour ...With muzzle
and nicker and patient eyes for the kind of woman I will be
When I am old.
