Horsie little girls grow up
to be Ladies of the Lake,
to whom others look up
when they start to wake.

Dispensing wisdom from the trees
Horsey Old Women
grin as they talk to the shadows,
exchanging secrets with the sea.

But you’d never know by looking —
they wear jeans, lipstick and jack boots.
These modern day Eponas
still teach the owlets to hoot.
