    Default Blind Horse - Norman MacCaig


    He snuffles towards
    pouches of water in the grass
    and doesn't drink
    when he finds them.

    He twitches listlessly
    at sappy grass stems and stands
    stone still, his hanging head
    caricatured with a scribble
    of green whiskers.

    Sometimes that head swings high,
    ears cock - and he stares
    down a long sound,
    he stares and whinnies
    for what never comes.

    His eyes never close,
    not in the heat of the day
    when his leather lip droops and
    he wears blinkers of flies.

    At any time of the night
    you hear him in his dark field
    stamp the groung, stamp
    the world down, waiting impatiently
    for the light to break


    This poem concentrate on three basic themes: Disability, Human neglection of animals and Despair.
    The imagery used in this poem reflects the poor condition of the horse and the field he lives in. MacCaig also tells that every living thing has got feelings and emotions, he tells that the horse "stamp the ground" when he gets frustrated of the darkness that surrounds him. he's got no choice but to live in this darkness till the day he dies
