The Poet's Corner: Part 1

The wild horses
In Chincoteague,
Springing through the sand
With their heads held high.

The ocean waves lapping at their hooves,
Twenty stallions, mares, fillies, and colts,
Such beautiful creatures
With their muscular build
And silk bodies.

The different colored tails,
Black, chestnut, and pearl
Flying behind them
As they run, run, run
