My mares

Nefrote

This old year
leaves me cold

& what a price
I’ve paid in life
in love.

My mares come
to me, a dream
these three:

with whom I
shared my love
my hope.

Neglected now
tattered coats
& it’s been

full twenty years
since we have
shared these

fields.

They stood
so pleased
to see

that I had
come at last
as if

they’d waited
by the gate
this long.

What a price
I’ve paid for
this:

for when I
woke my
heart did break

to see t’was
but a dream
my mares

all three
still waiting.

    Lovely poem! Keep sending them!

    We had a lot of snow fall yesterday – the first of the winter! Just in from using the snowblower on the driveway.

    I’m glad to say that I will be going south to Palm Island in the Grenadines for three weeks on 22 January – lovely to get away from this weather Ruaraidh McIntyre
