Essence (of Horsemanship): a poem

A Majesty
Not contained
By force,
But directed
By silence

An Elegance
Not gained
By control,
But grown
By subtlety

A Purity
Not made
By hands,
But found
By perceiving

A Presence
Not seen
By eyes,
But imagined
By feeling

A Language
Not written
By man
But understood
By listening
