Schooling: A Literary Excursion


She pulls and chafes,
   champs at the bit,
      sweat dampens her sides
   restive in restraint,
fretful, angry, nervous
not lightly waiting for command -
   for she had come to the test
        ready, eager,
as the spur bit in her side -
 when after one great,
                          glorious bound
  the haul at her mouth
          brought her to knees
              then full to the ground.

She rises again, on wary feet
   now knowing what to expect
lost is her will for the challenge
     left now only bitterness

Mother is apparently feeling grumpy. It's just as well she didn't come for a visit tonight.

  1. Ick boyfriend. That poem sounds perfect for my final exam yesterday : P Your mother I think captured how we're all feeling right now. Tell her to cheer up; you can always buck the trainer. ; )
