No. 1 Pony






No.1                     COMPANIONS

A blackbird encountered a pony in winter.

The bird's tribe had flown south. The pony was past his prime. They were both cold and hungry.

The pony shared his straw. Birds do not eat straw.

The blackbird shared a berry. Ponies avoid strange berries.

They stayed together. The blackbird whistled the night away. The pony whinnied a welcome to the morning. The winter passed.

In Spring the blackbird was captured by an eagle.




The pony was brought to a factory which made fertiliser.


No life is pointless, no death is useless.
