Helen Presents: a poem from Anthony Mondal

The soft whisperings of sweet nothings & lullaby’s into her ear
The gentle brushing of her unruly mane
And he cleans her hooves with his very own hands
While she protests mildly like a child
Then he held her head in his hands
And showered kisses on her lips
She responds by nodding her head in approval.
And the old man passes for nothing
Dressed in shabby clothes with an awkward gait
But if only our eyes could see,
The love of the old man for his horse
Exceeds eight (8) millions in the city.
