Inspiration piece

Barbara McLaren Bever


Unreined Ukraine

Horses once ran free
Between our rivers and the Caspians
Until we tamed them
Like we were later tamed
By Germans, Poles, and Russians
Corralled in a concrete Bloc.

Chomping at the bit
Verdant fields beneath our feet
Arms outstretched
Across the land
From L’viv to Kiev.

We stood for freedom
And dreams
That you may run unfettered
Toward the future.
Do not tarry at the starting gate
In your vibrant racing silks
Sweet filly
It is open.
