The Unasked ~ A Poem Blog Archive on July 24, 2009, 8:00

by Madelaina, age 13

I asked for the sun,
To bring golden relief to
Shadow-captured air.

To be fearless, yet
Bestowing jeweled purity
On ripples of flaw.

I asked for its home
To be free from bruised clouds,
Unscathed by terror,

Untie netted chance,
Send it to girls, letting them
Dare to be free, fly.

Skies never promise,
The sun can always lie, but
Horses pleased my wish.

Fearless, they soar,
Battle the rain, mock the sun
Triumphing all fears.

They guide us on flights.
