Fresh as an early morning
a colt is curious yet skittish,
long delicate legs
yet strong and swift.
Wanting to get close to you
yet quickly retreating to his mother!

Afraid yet fearless.
Perfectly beautiful to watch.
Muscles smooth under a soft fuzzy coat
What beauty,
the joy and power of a new life!
