Horse Sense

You run untamed, wild and free
In awe of your graceful beauty
Majestic beings born among us
Untouched by the hand of man
Fiery eyes and beastly strength
Perfectly created and protected
Claiming your place in the world
Is it horse sense or God's hand?

We long to be in your presence
Seeking, we find you and watch
We wrangle, house and train you
Brush, tame, bridle and ride you
Yet no man can own your spirit
Your gentle soul and true heart
Beyond our own understanding
Is it horse sense or God's hand?

We wrestle with our unkindness
Using you to calm our thoughts
Justifying our thoughtless acts
With closed rectangular minds
Gazing away into the wild fields
Breaking the burdensome ropes
Roaming off into the dusty plains
Is it horse sense or God's hand?
