Poem: Sky Horses Of Ancient Myth

By: G. Louis Heath

A phalanx of muscular, gray cloud gazes
Dimly on my day. I hear thunderbirds

Behind the thunderheads. Or maybe they
Are chariots roaring out of Rome, drawn

By sky horses. Yes, more like that. I think
Of the sky chairs of ancient myth and the

Steeds pulling them. The overcast and myth
Clear now. I see your flight is on time today.
