Centaur Mentor

Lord Hippo rode with manly abandon

Don't ride me he called to his burser

The purse hung heavy and large at his leg, 

Beat a tattoo as his gallop raised dust

Beating the race of the sun

At whose decline the ship's sail raised

To American bays declined from the cliff

Where a man and a horse were one.
