Winter Magic

by Mary Benson

Except from the poetry collection

Blue Mountain Rider by Mary Benson and Hedy Strauss


Come fly away!

On an enchanted sleigh.

Lost and laughing,

In swirling, whirling, winter white.


Merry bells

Ringing,

Singing.


Majestic Morgans

Flashing,

Dashing.


Flowing manes

Unfurling,

Curling.


Puffs of snow

Sifting,

Drifting.


Silent runners

Sliding,

Gliding.


Snowflakes clinging, harnesses jingling.

What joy to be

Running so free

On a magic carpet…are we.
