Covenant

Spread the love

HD-Horses-wallpaper (1)

Lo! with a touch as soft as tulle she bade blessings to
her horse. WhileΒ smoothing his fetlocks and his mane;
she disposed of her worries and her pain. The creatures
lope and bound round fields of Elysium; a land of pure
delight where thus saints immortal reign.

“Symbolical glory of the earth and air; to wander lone
into their presence is thus beyond a mortal’s share.
Forgive the maiden’s gaffe for she holds an iron bond;
tis baffling mere at thought;Β to grant her covet fond!”
“Horse more worth than riches” she replied with valiant
sass.”Let discern, compare, pronounce; found brighter
hope at last.”

Breathing from her lips a prayer;
Above the skies awash and clear.

    Granting “her covet fond” was giving her the world. Horses are smart, but the most valuable horse I know of was a riding horse for his breeding lines.
