What a lovely, rhythmic offering, W.J.! :) That cadence of your 8-8-8-8 paired with your repetition of 'my horse and I' (love the variations of that, by the way - awesome!) set up the feel of a trotting or a galloping to really delightfully enclose the reader into your tiny tale! ;) Seriously, this would be a great little children's book of a little boy and his horse for beginning readers -- just make sure you have it ready by the time my boys decide to settle down an give me grandsons!! Great job, my lady -- six stars all yours! ;) :) Yvette :)

    Hi Yvette,
    I've never thought of doing a children's book with a poem, but what a nice thing to say.
    I appreciate the analysis of the writing and how it feels like trotting or galloping.
    Thank you too for the lovely six star rating. I appreciate it!

Fantastic poem Debi. I was riding along and enjoying every moment. Remembering a time when... Oh well, We all have our day! This is a delightful poem and I enjoyed it very much. Nancy:)

I loved this one. as the story-line progressed from one stanza to the next, I was rooting for you to get to the stables before the rains. I think I might have even cheered when you made it. Man/ horse against nature- always a fun ride!

I'm so sorry- I'm out of six(s)...

A very well-written poem about the wonderful morning spend with your horse on a ride. A beautiful morning this time of year can quickly change to dark cloudy skies. I am glad you made it home before the first drops fall.

(That is a very eye-catching moody photo.) Your poem captures the relief of good timing to miss the downpour really well. I like the included repeat lines of 'my horse and I' as it emphasises you were both in it together.

-Nice image and
presentation, Debi.
-Thanks for sharing
the story in the notes, too.
-This is an excellent poem
that flows smoothly with good
meter, imagery, rhyme, and
repeating phrase.
-It has the cadence of the ride, as well.
-You paint a vivid word picture
of what you see as you ride,
as well as the approaching storm,
and then being "inside on cobbled floor."
-I enjoyed this poem; thanks for sharing it.
