The New Forest Pony


A handsome New Forest Pony

Wanders across the road

For the ponies of the Forest

Are free to graze as they will.

Commoners rights are centuries old

It’s always been this way

So cars slow down to the pony’s pace

And life is pleasantly slow.

They say that ponies have grazed here

Many a thousand year.

And later on ‘‘twas a hunting ground

For Willie the conqueror.

It’s not all trees in the Forest

There’s open moorland too.

It’s a special place you can get away,

Stay, visit or just drive through.

You may meet a pony in the road

They’ll likely slow you down

But adjust yourself to the Forest pace

They’re a pleasure to be around.
