Built to Last

There’s something about a saddle

especially an old one

built to last.

Makes me wonder

of it’s stories

and what it has seen

in it’s past.

Long days,

starlit nights,

passionate love,

drunken fights.

Silently speaking

of steadfast value.

It’s getting harder to find

that kind of virtue.

The kind of virtue found

in the silent stories

from the past

of an old saddle

built to last.

E.A. Fussell
