The Spirit of US in Equus
by Jack Vance
December 24, 2008 Santa Ynez California
Oh you of
speed and power with beauty unexcelled
You have carried me upon your back close to Heaven and near Hell
You have done my bidding through out the days less falter in your step
You please me in so many ways I often feel inept
When I think I understand you I sometimes often find
The thoughts I am really having you have planted in my mind
For more than half a century you have pulled my Heart Strings tight
Now as I look ahead this day I see the end in sight
The burls of life have come and gone but our partnership remains
Mostly because of you my friend who looks not for personal gain
The end of travel that I see is not for us to fret
For the bridges we’ have built are ones of love and sweat
We have had our time in this world to build that bridge of trust
Now others who might follow can see it was a must
Admittedly I'm not the greatest trainer, heck I'm not even renowned
But then you are not the greatest horse, just the best one that’s around
