Little Wild Wanderer...

Far, far away
where the skies are
magical misted grey
in a lonely place
where the wind
whistles it’s own sweet tune
and heather
swirls around your ankles
perfect purple carpet
far as the eye can see…

In the North,
a secret place
where you can dream
running free in the summer wind
There lives
under misty sky
a Little Wild Wanderer,
four quick little hooves
two chocolate button eyes
long cotton candy mane
tossed so playfully in the rain…

This Little Wild Wanderer
stalks a whisky coloured sky
dancing among the heather
quick little hooves
slicing through copper grass
chasing his shimmering shadow
and whinnying at a passing cloud:
horsey for laughing out loud!

Little Wild Wanderer
may come cantering
over the purple misted heather
cheeky glint in his eye
If you are very lucky
If you are very still & silent
You might just catch
a glimpse
of this tiny pony
in his coat of caramel and cream
before he picks up
those quick little hooves
and gallops far, far away
Leaving you in wonder,
to dream another day

Artist's Description

Thank you to Alison from the ART & STORIES MADE FOR CHILDREN group for inspiring me to write this wee poem for their new poetry challenge.

My Muse…who else but the titled four legged wonder lol!!

I think if you discover the magical quality of horses at a tender age, that love never dies. Hopefully the words embue the cheeky spirit of these wee horses and the enchantment we feel as children on first meeting these wonderful creatures.

And here he is…The Little Wild Wanderer!
Available as cards, prints & posters.
