| When I am Old.....
Please click on above picture to visit the ranch
|I shall wear diamonds And a wide brimmed straw hat with silver and leather on it and I shall spend my social security on white wine and carrots And sit in the alley of my barn And listen to my horses breathe.
I will sneak out in the middle of a summer's night And ride the sorrel colt Across the moonstruck meadow. If my old bones will allow.
And when people come to call I will smile and nod. As I walk them past the gardens to the barn And show, instead, the beauty growing here In stalls fresh-lined with straw.
I will learn to shovel and sweat and wear hay in my hair as if it were a jewel. And I will be an embarrassment to all Who look down on me.
Who have not yet found the peace in being free to love a horse as a friend, A friend who waits at midnight hour With muzzle and nicker and patient eyes For the kind of woman I will be.... When I am Old.
