After Winslow Homer: Rustic Courtship and The Bridle Path, White Mountains

She looks down
from her window’s height
from her white horse’s back.

She knows the men will always be bigger, stronger
make more money
have the law on their side

Not for her the powerful arms, pitchfork, place at the head
Not for her the football fame or Olympic accolades
Not for her to ride astride into or out of danger

She takes advantage
or at least vantage
wherever she can.

She looks down.
