Where To Bury A Horse / Don't Cry For The Horses

If you bury him in this spot the secret of which you must already have, he will come to you when you call; come to you over the fall dim pastures of death. And though you ride other living horses through life, they shall not shy at him, nor resent him coming. For he is yours and he belongs to you. People may scoff at you who see no lightest blade of grass bent by his foot fall, who hear no nicker pitched too fine for insensitive ears. People who may never really love a horse, smile at them then, for you shall know something that is hidden from them and which is well worth the knowing. The one place to bury a horse is in the heart of his master. - Author Unknown

Don't Cry For The Horses

Don't cry for the horses

That life has set free

A million white horses

Forever to be

Don't cry for the horses

Now in God's hands

As thy dance and they prance

To a heavenly band

They were ours as a gift

But never to keep

As they close their eyes

Forever to sleep

Their spirits unbound

On silver wings they fly

A million white horses

Against the blue sky

Look up into heaven

You'll see them above

The horses we lost

the horses we loved

Manes and tails flowing

They gallop through time

They were never yours never mine

Don't cry for the horses

They will be back someday

When our time has come

They will show us the way

On silver wings they will lift us

To the warmth of the sun

When our life is over

And eternity has begun

We will jump the sun

And dance over the moon

A ballet of horses and riders on the winds

To a heavenly tune

Do you hear that soft nicker

Close to your ear

Don't cry for the horses

Love the ones that are here

Don't cry for the horses

Lift up your sad eyes

Can't you see them

As they fly by?

million whiite horses

Free from hunger and pain

Their spirits set free

Until we ride again - Brenda Riley - Seymore
