Walt Whitman's words from "Song of Myself" inspired Horse Play-
“The Stallion” by Walt Whitman
A gigantic beauty of a stallion, fresh and responsive
to my caresses.
Head high in the forehead, wide between the ears,
Limbs glossy and supple, tail dusting the ground,
Eyes full of sparkling wickedness, ears finely cut,
His nostrils dilate as my heels embrace him,
His well-built limbs tremble with pleasure as we
race around and return.
