The Horse

The Horse

Where in this wide world can man find

nobility without pride,

Friendship without envy,

Or beauty without vanity?

Here, where grace is served with muscle

And strength by gentleness confined

He serves without servility;

he has fought without enmity.

There is nothing so powerful, nothing less violent.

There is nothing so quick, nothing more patient.


by Ronald Duncan

NOTE - all horses belong to Barry's nephew and his family
