I am new to poetry, so I could really use some good advise from veteran poets. This poem is a true story about a mare who lost her foal and wouldn't leave the body for three days. Could there be a spiritual lesson we could learn from this?
A lifeless body in sunlit dew
Memories fading with morning mist
The motionless mother towered over
Like a sad statue she stood with love
Head hung low to the ground
As if anchors held it down
Her legs molded firmly in place
Grass grows green all around
Freckled with flowers opening for spring
In the gentle hope a new day will bring
How hard to watch a mother's sorrow
Although eventually she'd go
Three days past 'til a muscle moved
She was ready to say goodbye
As petals blew in the wind
Sorry drifted from the field
It's something to watch a mare grieve
For her foal who would never glory
In carrying a child through the snow
