Mid-Ride and the Pride

Mid-Ride and the Pride

Photo c2009 by Nickers and Ink

No Wrest for the Wicked

The fox-hunting season began,

As horses and hounds swiftly ran -

The boy’s name was Reed,

The pony’s Stampede.

Grandfather held on with one hand.

Herein they began a quick trip,

As mini attempted to flip.

The little one wailed,

But honor prevailed,

As Senior lost not his strong grip.
