Last Stand - Horse Frightened by a Storm - E. Delacroix (1824)
Horse Frightened by a Storm – E. Delacroix (1824)

When a horse is on his knee
don’t shoot him till he stands
,
one so proud, a final plea

is his to stay your hands.

Will you drag him when he’s dead
?
Should you tear his flesh and mane?

Leave him there to shed

his glory in the rain.

For when the clouds have risen

his figure leaves his voice
,
painted in the prison

of life without a choice.
