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.

The Lake in the Valley

The Lake in the Valley  By, Francisco Alfredo Lopez

One clear and beautiful day where the sky
is as blue as a bluebirds head with the
shining hot sun pointing it rays all over the hills
and the mountains
the trees all looking so young, fresh and
healthy with all the green colored leaves
embracing them and the birds making their
nests and homes on them
in the middle of the forest there is a large
lake of water where the fish and the other
animals go to swim and eat any food
they find there sometimes boats of fishermen
visit to see if they can conjure up some fish
or other creatures for their morning catch
the scenery of the brown colored mountains
and the green colored forest gives it an
ultimate view that is not only heavenly but
also unforgettable that is why the
Lake in the Valley is a very special place to all.
