The 2nd House

July 11, 2016

Approaching from the sea,
Our next traveller wades in
From his island home, horns
And hooves shining in the sun.

A practical creature, it is not
Prone to speaking aloud. He is
Proud but not boastful, truly an
Independent thinker of his time.

With each hoof imprinted in
The sand, a coin purse jingles;
He does not seem to feel like
Sharing in his king’s ransom.

A perfect sign of ambition, he’ll
Reign with two curved horns.
