Shooting Goals
by Helen Murray  
2/15/2007 / Poetry


There's a horse in my back yard,
Most magnificent to regard,
Black his colour, long his mane
Upon his shoulder tangling down.
Jet coat shines and muscles ripple
As he rears and prances danger.
He's a stallion, powerfully built.
His name is Anger.

There's another little pony,
Very lovable is this one.
Bright and sunny is her nature,
White and gold her bristling colour
As everybody's favourite choice
She works the hard extended hours -
But overworked she has a voice!
She is Compassion.

Next the pinto comes for breakfast,
Trotting sweetly to the repast,
Tough and wiry, head tossed gaily,
Snorting, stamping, propping daily.
He's the one with his own mind,
Hard mouth, slow to understand
What is needed, tags behind,
He's called Willpower.

Can't leave out the lovely racer,
Chestnut and the red lights lace her!
Most eye-catching, charged and ready,
Whipping round upon a penny,
Found where other horses run,
She'll toss you off if she thinks she can.
Ever dancing in the sun.
Dependency.

There are many steeds at stable
In my back yard. I am able
To learn to manage every one
Under tuition of the Son.
Jealousy, Envy, Hope and Fear
Are some of the others that I hold dear.
Each has their place and each their task.
And each their sting.

For the rider who is highly skilled,
And has his mounts all daily drilled
Will play life's game of polo well.
His Coach will keep him 'on the ball'.
And every horse will become his friend,
Learn good manners, when to stretch,
When to pull and twist and send
The gospel ball to goal!

Grandmother, teacher, bushlover, horse-lover, gardener, poet ("Poetry with Punch" published by Tate Publishers and available in electronic form on Amazon) and passionate person, especially about Jesus.
