Welcome to the world!

Shambling as a fresh foal
over fresh fields of Elysium.
I took breath,
gave time and smiles - fine times,
with a perfect west wind skirting the track
and the sun setting beyond barbed wires.

The sky gives a giving glow,
nudges us lightly to the brink -
night out, lights out, and I shall see

Spring has brightened my gagged spirit,
and given it voice. So as spring turns
to summer, as we foals learn to gallop the plains -
laughing out loud -
I shall sing it all - like Orpheus, leaving the dead lands.
