Horse - Poem by Louise Gluck

What does the horse give you
That I cannot give you?

I watch you when you are alone,
When you ride into the field behind the dairy,
Your hands buried in the mare's
Dark mane.

Then I know what lies behind your silence:
Scorn, hatred of me, of marriage. Still,
You want me to touch you; you cry out
As brides cry, but when I look at you I see
There are no children in your body.
Then what is there?

Nothing, I think. Only haste
To die before I die.

In a dream, I watched you ride the horse
Over the dry fields and then
Dismount: you two walked together;
In the dark, you had no shadows.
But I felt them coming toward me
Since at night they go anywhere,
They are their own masters.

Look at me. You think I don't understand?
What is the animal
If not passage out of this life?

    Is this a man talking to a woman or a waman talking to a man? Reply

Horse Poems

  1. Don'T Let That Horse

    Don't let that horse eat that violin cried Chagall's mother But he kept right on painting And became famous And kept on painting The Horse With Violin In Mouth And when he finally finished it he jumped up upon the horse and rode away waving the violin And then with a low bow gave it to the first naked nude he ran across And there were no strings attached

  2. The Fly-Away Horse

    Oh, a wonderful horse is the Fly-Away Horse - Perhaps you have seen him before; Perhaps, while you slept, his shadow has swept Through the moonlight that floats on the floor. For it's only at night, when the stars twinkle bright, That the Fly-Away Horse, with a neigh And a pull at his rein and a toss of his mane, Is up on his heels and away! The Moon in the sky, As he gallopeth by, Cries: "Oh! what a marvelous sight!" And the Stars in dismay Hide their faces away In the lap of old Grandmother Night. It is yonder, out yonder, the Fly-Away Horse Speedeth ever and ever away - Over meadows and lanes, over mountains and plains, Over streamlets that sing at their play; And over the sea like a ghost sweepeth he, While the ships they go sailing below, And he speedeth so fast that the men at the mast Adjudge him some portent of woe. "What ho there!" they cry, As he flourishes by With a whisk of his beautiful tail; And the fish in the sea Are as scared as can be, From the nautilus up to the whale! And the Fly-Away Horse seeks those faraway lands You little folk dream of at night - Where candy-trees grow, and honey-brooks flow, And corn-fields with popcorn are white; And the beasts in the wood are ever so good To children who visit them there - What glory astride of a lion to ride, Or to wrestle around with a bear! The monkeys, they say: "Come on, let us play," And they frisk in the cocoanut-trees: While the parrots, that cling To the peanut-vines, sing Or converse with comparative ease! Off! scamper to bed - you shall ride him tonight! For, as soon as you've fallen asleep, With a jubilant neigh he shall bear you away Over forest and hillside and deep! But tell us, my dear, all you see and you hear In those beautiful lands over there, Where the Fly-Away Horse wings his faraway course With the wee one consigned to his care. Then grandma will cry In amazement: "Oh, my!" And she'll think it could never be so; And only we two Shall know it is true - You and I, little precious! shall know!

  3. Horse And Rider

    The prairie blows the grasses And whips the horse’s mane. They travel, horse and rider, Through the sea of amber grain Hills roll by, and clouds pass But steady are the horse’s hooves Upon the wind blown grass As they travel, horse and rider There is no trail that they follow No path that can be seen There they travel, horse and rider Upon the endless blowing green

  4. Dark Horse

    I I have proved and stayed as dark horse Nobody would come to know without code Morse People disregard me and pass the curse Always non starter and unavailable force I have earned disrepute and considered as unreliable Still try to garner support and prove capable Never waste a time for second or minute Keep watch on all and observe it minutely Play game safe and advance self interest Try to extract more and achieve the best Everything at command without passing test Achievement of the goal without any rest All for self betterment and not for social cause No let up in work and continue without pause This all becomes necessary in changing world I know naked truth then why people turn cold? This is selfish world and you should stay supreme Play safe and never go to the end extreme I may prove incompetence if not seize the opportunity Life comes to a halt if not keep continuity, People have a soft corner and very short memory Go for bright glitter and never feel sorry Worship rising sun and look not at sunset Life should be at height and ambition preset All eyes are on achievement and conceding defeat Success story should emerge even making repeat People fall in line and not mind treachery Offer all the help even they feel jittery Neither I am claiming nor proving hollow System so prevalent I piously follow Not offer chance or slight mistake to allow People know better what is lying below I want to achieve and rise above average Glory and name should have wide coverage All might say what is there in name It doesn’t follow without playing game I continuously strive after hard bargain Doesn’t matter more whether loss or gain Nothing comes in life without taking pain Simple truth should be followed as it is plain
