Alice Walker's Title Is Once Again Appropriate

Do you know the title I mean? It's her collection of poetry called Horses Make the Landscape Look More Beautiful. Poets speak truth. In the landscape below, I sensed something missing:

"Where are the horses?" I cried in impatience and frustration. Then -- "Stop! Turn right!" I'd spied them from a distance.

The curiosity of these massive, beautiful animals is part of their charm, along with their soft, warm noses and sweet, tickly whiskers.

Along with nobility, generosity, and unself-conscious beauty, these two also had friendly, confident and slightly teasing personalities. What glorious animals! What a perfect encounter for a beautiful fall day!
