The Fast Stallion

The Fast Stallion  By, Francisco Alfredo Lopez

Through the hills and mountains near an
old country farm the wooded fence broken
with no gate at all and just green grass and
weeds decorate the lonely barn and home
but out from the barn door runs out a young horse
brown in color and quick as a whip
runs across the fields and into the hills to get some
water then returns to eat some grass and hay
before preparing to be a race horse during the day
he runs and strides around the track so many
times for anybody to count but at a speed
that it appears he is flying through the air
the jockey on top of him pats him on the back
telling him that he is ready and almost there
because one day he will be the fastest stallion
on the race track everywhere.
