They Were Here–A Poem Inspired by Byron Metcalf and Jennifer Grais’ Song
This is a very powerful song and I was so inspired by the message that this album wanted to convey by drawing our attention to the conservation of Stallions.
This poem is inspired by the song of the same name and also the album’s name is the same.
You can listen to the mesmerizing song here as you read the poem:
They were here
Spirited, racing with the winds;
Talking to the gods
With the rhythm of their hooves
And neighing in constant awareness of their
Majesty over the earth they ruled.
They danced with every step
And refused to be overawed
By any distance, any steppe, any tempest.
Gentle but untamed;
Powerful but non-violent.
Let’s call them:
They will hear; they were here.
