Missed Connections: You, on the Horse
Last solstice,During the great snow,You stopped by my woods.I heard your horse's bells,Caught their silver glint beneathThe moon, discerned your snow-litCheek. I saw you there, I did.These woods are lonely.Come back soon.Come back soon.

P.S. In researching Missed Connections ads, I came across a beautifully illustrated book of missed connections. The author, Sophie Blackall, also has a blog full of her work.
