Out from nowhere ran the yearling
Powering through the desert heat
On past cacti, lion lizards, rattlesnakes, coyote
Hooves impressing sand, yearling moving me.
Fired high with hopes and passion
Tense with eagerness and strength
Building bridges with the new ones
Snorting inner confidence and zeal
Move out forward past the elders–
Far exceed their thoughts for you.
Charge the dawn with strides of swiftness,
Race the sun for better views.
You, the newest bastion of survival,
Meet the future on the run.
And when evening sets among us
Gallop on through sundown’s dark
Don’t forget that on horizons
Meet the hopes of morning’s throngs
