I was at the Book Fair yesterday
Where this card for March was on display
Showing Pegasus with outspread wings
Capable of so many things.
Life’s like that – one long magic ride
With stars and storms on every side
Through mist and clouds we sometimes go
And cannot see the earth below.
Even through the darkest night
We keep the faith and hold on tight
God’s wings keep us safe, protected
So none of us will be neglected.
Captured with an artist’s skill,
This magic stallion haunts me still
Buoyed up with hope, my spirit soars
Beyond the reach of Satan’s claws!
