Read introduction

Written about a horse whose life touched the human realm. I don't recall where I found the story but it was worthy enough to inspire this poem.

Little Dark One

You came into the world a darkling bay
Whose dam was fleet as a misty deep dusk,
And who knew that you'd grow into a rusk
Of strength and speed, sire of unreckoned husk
So great, you left pastures greener, they say.
