Riding 400 Horses

For Bridgette and Billie Jo Kies

Such a powerful
Potent mix,
Of Turbine and Kerosene,
With the power
Of four hundred horses…

Five precious lives,
And a half million dollars
Of Chopper-
Hanging through our skies…

One very young
And female Pilot,
Riding four hundred horses,
Joystick reins and throttle,
With firm and steady –
But gentle feet and hands,

Bridgette and Billie Jo,
The youngest female
In our land.

Such awesome power!

Such powerful,
Intelligent women…

Teaching our younger girls,
Even they can ride

Four hundred horses.

Listen to With heaven at His Back Door

Tim Barritt. 2006.
