rest now my teacher

put your foot here

i step up into the stirrup
not knowing what to expect
my hands grasp the reins
put your foot here

he takes a step forward
i follow with my hips
his ears turn slightly backward
he listens for my voice

one two three four
a walk that takes you there
a spring in his step
me up in the air

we advance as we age
together we did learn
my trust his trust
we shared this bond

through the woods we go
following the path we know
ever twisting always turning
our rhythm we did share

one two three beat
our pace has advanced
a lengthening stride
as he lifts his back into a trot

he is quiet now as he rest
a noble gentleman
he taught me what there is to know
i would do it all over again
