His Greatest Treasure  

The minstrel was now riding
for someone had gifted him a horse.
And he'd been tired of walking
so this was better by far of course.

Admittedly his buttocks hurt
so he'd have to learn to sit more proper.
But this was even a far better deal
than ten coins made out of copper.

For that was the worth of this old nag
but not a nag to him.
A kind man had given her for a song
upon a fleeting whim.

He'd expected perhaps drink or food
upon that evening fair.
Yet what the bloke had handed him
was this sway-backed and tired mare.

Now both of them were worn out
as they traveled down the trail.
And he was nearly hypnotized
by the swishing of her tail.

The bard was riding high now
and he knew it was a pleasure.
He'd found a ride and found a friend
to be his greatest treasure.

jolly and entertaining
Nicely written, . One could get hoarse on subjects like this. Sometimes it is good to have a nag together.. Keep writing, never enough humour written nowadays.Terry
