Wheels roll, full steam ahead, though not too fast
Metal clanging, chugging, pulling struggles behind
The iron moves, clinging to track unfurled, whistles with blast
Past the horse, natural worker, attached by family, farm and beauty.
Now is beauty full of metal – stronger, no need to eat or rest
Only controlled by owner, feeding water, fuel and direction
Iron horse arrives, relieving hooves that tracked the countryside
It pulls its load, no complaint, no holding back, no need to force the struggle
I’m thankful for the iron horse, the progress through life, achievements to ease the burdens.
I’m thankful for the horse, its beauty, natural flow of free spirit and life, its willingness to carry the load.
Blessings along the Way!
