Broken Wing

near the burbling stream
next to the clover bank and hill
the meeting place the pearl hooves fell
under the yellow moon beam
with coat of fire orange opaline
the winged mare alicorn stood seen
mirrored on the flowing ravine
but not to pass this shore again
a broken bird huddles in the freezing rain
