Durango, Colorado

Equophilia:  The bench suggests rest. The horse suggests action. Now, read the last stanza of Will Ogilvie's poem "Hoofs of the Horses" and see how he handles the themes of rest and action. Greenmount Cemetery. [2013]

     "When you lay me to slumber no spot can you choose
But will ring to the rhythm of galloping shoes,
And under the daisies no grave be so deep
But the hoofs of the horses shall sound in my sleep."
