Radiance

 By Michael Diebold, Louisville , KY

 

July 2013 issue  

 

In the silence of the Sunday morning

My three horses walk in line with quiet dignity

down from the pasture to their shed,

finished grazing till the sun passes its zenith.

 

They are content with grass and clover

and the waters of the lake.

 

She leads them as always.

They move with grace and gratitude

before the August sun begins to sap their zest

to wait in the cool of their shaded shed.

 

She will bring them out to graze

When the heat of day is done with baking.

 

They walk to rhythms of the sun and moon,

undisturbed by artifice of clock or human deadlines

which govern my living here in their fields.

 

I keep a different beat, a hurried pace

which I do not impose upon them

Since I have arrived, just after Derby .

 

Regal and splendid in their bearing

They are happy in this green Kentucky summer.
