Good Medicine

My horse has a hoof like striped agate.
His fetlock is like a fine eagle plume.
His legs are like quick lightening.
My horse's body is like an eagle-plumed arrow.
My horse has a tail like a trailing black cloud.
His mane is made of short rainbows.
My horse's ears are made of round corn.
My horse's head is made of mixed waters
from the holy springs -- he never know thirst.
My horse's teeth are made of white shell.
The long rainbow is in his mouth for a bridle
And with it I guide him.
