After that tear-jerker of a Budweiser commerical last night–you all saw it, didn’t you? The man who raises the Clydesdale colt, only to see it leave for the big time?–I thought this poem was appropriate.
First, the link to the Budweiser commercial: (get out your hankies)
Next, the link to Garrison Keillor reading this morning’s poem from The Writer’s Almanac: “Celebration: Birth of a Colt” by Linda Hogan.
Just a little pop culture-literary mix for your Monday morning. Enjoy!
