The Day of 1,000 Hoof Prints

The Day of 1,000 Hoof Prints

by Brittany Jean Schonert

I grab the reins and hold on tight
I hope my horse will not get a fright
She gallops and trots, whinnies a lot

I gaze to my left and see a canyon set against a pink sunset
I sit upon my western saddle and gaze at a southern sunset

My boots hurt my feet, after a long day in the saddle, I fear dark is drawing near, I head back to the house and put my horse in her stall

I enter the house and creep down the hall and hear the door knob creek
The door opens. I walk in and take off my hat
I kick off my boots
Then I lay down my head
I hit the sack
