Secretariat : The Red Freak, the Miracle
by Lyn Lifshin




Overview -
"This full arc of life--bigger than imagination in a raging fire--is set on paper by a poet obsessed with beauty, hooves, and the passion of flight....In Lifshin's language, spare yet metaphorically profound, we enter into that animal grace that only a true poet can convey, as we race on from poem to poem, joining Secretariat in triumph--'not for a win but a coronation.'" --Laura Chester

AS THE DAYS GET LONGER

the horse dreams
of flying in the air
like a gust of wind
on an abandoned
Christmas tree,
red exploding like
a spurt of light,
flaming wildly like
those boughs of
northern lights
out of darkness
