Amicus Equus


In paddock hoof-churned into mud
The abandoned palfrey stands
Wearing thin and wearing out
Jute knotted into love.
Wimpled with neglect
Waiting, vacant and numb to hope,
For rider’s return.

About suzanawylie

Suzana Wylie is the not-very-pseudo pseudonym of Susan Wylie Wilson, because let's face it, there are lots of Susan Wilsons around, and as an author, I want readers to find ME and not the bazillions of others. I've been writing all my life - since I learned to hold a pencil anyway - and can't NOT write. Other people have to breathe to live; I have to write.

    “wimpled with regret” is such a great line. ❤
