I wrote this for my Victor about a year ago. 'Cause I'm rather fond of him. :3

The Tenth Muse

Step aside, you muses nine
For I know of one more
A being to rival the seven wonders-
He is the horse who I adore

He is imperfect; one leg is scarred
And appears modest at a glance
Yet he has the uncanny ability
To turn a stumble into a dance

Although his manner is serene
His mellow presence belies
The brazen, fiery spirit concealed
Behind those gentle eyes

If perchance, you catch him at play
And when the sun is just right
That tawny coat turns to liquid bronze-
A truly spellbinding sight!

He is a deity in his own right
The subject of my ardent love
He is my teacher and confidant
And I thank the gods above

What other horse was ever born
That could compare to my prince?
Where else is there such rare allure
Or such power restrained by gentleness?

Surely he is the envy of the muses nine
For there is no more passive force
And no greater strength more benign
Than that of my beloved horse

She confidently slides her foot into her left stirrup and swings into the saddle. She feels safe there; in her element. Nothing could take away from this experience.

You know her when you see her. The scent of leather and hay follow her everywhere she goes. Showers, soaps, and lotions can't hope to cover the scent of so much time spent in a barn.

She may be quiet or loud, tall or short, but one thing is always the same: she loves horses.

She can wax poetic about diagonals and canter leads. Ask her about her discipline and you better be ready for hours of starry-eyed description. She writes about them and draws them. They chase her in her sleep.

In the saddle, she is confident, cool, and brave. She knows just what she has to do.

When she can't ride, it feels like she is only half of what she truly is.

She is an equestrian.

Don't fret if you see it here: AshandCinders on deviantART it is my deviantart account :).

ETA: Sorry, my indents aren't showing up correctly on here, but each paragraph is indented.
