Horses Galloping


The horses broke into a gallop, swearing,
Shuffling like cards in a puzzle, swearing loudly;
Being like-minded fellows, a word was drawn
In dwarf’s rungs, feeding the frenzy of youth,
Licking the wounds so founded by those richer.

Blushing with embarrassment, a foal embraced
The religion of Christianity, with meat and ears
Of a good heathen, a good old wizard of old ears;
Magic entered the network of double standards,
Fences erected themselves by their contaminants.

A man was found swearing at the animals,
Undressing by the seconds and hours.
They started up again, the animals could be heard,
Neighing and watching their bees founded by lost arts.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
