Ride A Wild Horse....

April is National Poetry Month. Fortunately Stephen King from the V7N blogging group posted the other day about National Tartan Day and that reminded me that there were a few sites that list these dedicated days, weeks and/or months. This is a big help to bloggers, who run out of from time to time. You can just pop over to or something similar and pick up an idea for a post.

For example, today is Draw a Bird Day, which actually started in 1943. Follow the link; it's a wonderful story. Coming up soon is Change Your Name Day and this may be linked to Honour Your Middle Name Day - not quite sure.

Anyway in recognition of National Poetry Month - I would like to post one of my favourite poems.

Ride a Wild Horse" by Hannah Kahn

Ride a wild horse with purple wings 

striped yellow and black 

except his head 

which must be red. 

Ride a wild horse 

against the sky--

hold tight to his wings 

before you die 

whatever else you leave undone

once ride a wild horse 

into the sun.

Into the Sun

Please tell me what your favourite poem is.

April is also National Write a Poem Month - I still think that we need a group for those who just write Limericks or short cute poems that rhyme :)  Life is about creating fun...let's have more of it!!!

Have a wonderful day!!


  1. When I saw your blog title and then the comment about tartan I wondered for a very surreal moment if you were going to share a tartan knitting pattern! Instead I got a beautiful poem :)

  2. Lovely poem. Also you need to check my blog tomorrow because I have nominated you for an award...

  3. A month for poetry- cool.
    Maybe it will get folks to study 30 of them!

  4. I don't think I will add this to my bucket list because I was traumatized by a horse years ago, but I love the poem.

  5. Love the sentiment of the poem. I don't have a favorite poem. Some of my favorite lyrics though, are by Pink Floyd. Especially: "Look around and choose your own ground, for long you live and high you fly, and smiles you give and tears you cry, and all you touch and all you see is all your life will ever be." from "Breath"

  6. I don't think I have a favorite poem. I'll have to think about that one. Your favorite is lovely. Thank you for sharing!

  7. Lovely poem. I am no good at poetry. My favourite poem is 'If' by Rudyard Kipling
