Stanza Saturday (8)


Stanza Saturday is a new weekly post to share poetry from either a home collection or from the library.  Find a book of poems, any poet will do, and open up to a random page and post the first poem you see.  If the poem is rather lengthy, feel free to post just the first stanza and be sure to include the poem's title, the book's title, and the poet. ^_^

This week's poem is:

 "Endless Grasses"
By Jessie Haas

We are galloping this sea of grass,
Sunrise to sunset, sunrise to sunset.
No sound but our breath,
No sound by our galloping.
No sound but the wind, and the tall grass shhhing.
The sky is broad and blue and endless.
Endless are the grasses.
We crossed new land where none had been before,
Land from the sea, land between the seas.
Now on and on the grass stretches.
On stretch the herds.
Mammoth and reindeer, bison and rhino,
And horses.
Our hooves beat the earth-drum.
Our voices speak.
Doe to her fawn.
Cow to her calf.
Mare to her foal.
