Night Ride

Ethel Davis

Come with me,
down to where the trees are,
for there is a line of sky
without clouds,
and soon the earth
will be the color of red honey.
 
Come with me,
for there is enough feed
for the horses, 
and when we stop to sleep
we’ll keep the dogs close
to warm us.
 
Come with me,
for the songs of the Ancients
are calling.
Orion is straight above our heads,
and we must make
this night’s journey.
