A champion is now gone

A champion is now gone

A Poem by Niamh Flanagan

This is a poem about the great Dutch Warmblood stallion Hickstead who died a few months ago. I wanted to send this to Eric Lamaze but nah.



Now you have gone, gallop into the sky

Where you have been placed

No one will forget you

or your beautiful bay face

I will never let you go

for you are in my heart

you have always been mine

Even from the start

your mane will glide

and your tail will soar

You know what I am wishing for.

I want you back

for you were my idol

I still keep you in my head

and polish your saddle and bridle

where have you gone

where did you go

Right I'll see you there when I die

You won't even know.

I am a lovely person who loves horses and writing stories. I write stories about horses that have died in the past or future champions. I write poems about: Animals, life, love and etc. more..
