The Elbows have it


The angle of the elbows Is something to attend Keeping soft and grounded Floating in their bend. Elbows offer hands to horse Fingers gently aid Carried hands guide a course With balance to create Fingernails turned in Pinkie under thumb Elbows rest beside the waist Swinging like a plumb Straightness in our arms Blocks the hand and wrist, then Tension in our shoulders Makes a horse resist. Hands create a dialogue Not to fix and hold The elbow angle is the key If the truth be told.
