The ground beneath me
The sky before me

My heart beats in rhythm
with the thundering of my hooves

I round the corner and
charge at my challenge

My very soul
leaps inside me

I rise like a mighty Pegasus
bounding over earth itself

At that one moment time stands still
I am a creature of the wind and sky

Then earth pulls me toward her
as I descend from the heavens

I land with glee and honor
awaiting my next hour of flight
