    Chip's Turn

    Where once I heard the trod of hoof
    The birds now feed and peck at dirt
    Where once a noble head dipped down
    To quench a thirst, is now inert.

    Where once five nickers greeted me
    Where once five halters hung up flush
    Where once the air filled with their sound
    Now they are sold, my world is hushed.

    My eyes, not dry, gazed at the pen
    Gazed at the stall, the paddocks bare
    The only sound, soft moaning winds
    The only picture, none to share.

    Twas then while leaning on the fence
    My chin on hands, my tears fresh shed
    I heard the softest step of hoof
    And through the trees, a glimpse of red.

    Two liquid eyes, inquires now
    Since all companions had departed
    Is it his time with me at last?
    Is there a bond that might be started?

    He paused, ears pricked and looked at me
    My eyes gazed back and then I call
    Was this my steed, and on his back
    Together we would conquer all?

    One russet ear flicks at my voice
    Then daintily he steps across
    A distance short in corporal sense
    A distance long in love and trust.

    He rests his muzzle, velvet soft
    Against my hand and nuzzles there
    Its started, this bond we must forge
    A promise, it will go somewhere.

    And so we begin.
