The Horse Did Not Come Back

Purananuru 273

The horse did not come back,
his horse did not come back.
All the other horses have come back.

The horse
of our good man,

who was father in our house
to a little son
with a tuft of hair
like a plume on a steed,

it did not come back.

Has it fallen now,
his horse
that bore him through battle,

has it fallen
like the great tree
standing at the meeting place
of two rivers?
