BLACKSMITHS
young arms exulting in the joy of pumping air 
  from the bellows to fire the black smiths forge
. Lets see what size shoe fits this horse
keep that fire well lit, exclaimed the blacksmith,
plunging iron  into the fire.

The smith with tongs in hand plucks the iron from
 the red hot coal. Hammer raised to strike,and shape
  white hot iron into a horseshoe, Always wondered why he
   struck the anvil one ping first, then with
 a rat-tat-tat the smith shaped the shoe.
 
Lifting the leg of the massive draught horse, he
checks the shoe against the horses  hoof, and all the while
i'm pumping air to flame the red hot forge.
Shoe heated in flames, then ping, and a rat-a tat-tat 
the smiths hammer shapes the shoe.
Keep those bellows pumping young man.
exulting in the act of helping fire the forge 
knowing i'll ride this beautiful horse, that's  
 patiently waiting for its new shoe
 
 Six golden  miles of memories riding that horse
  to John-Joes farm in Minerstown from
 the blacksmiths forge in Killough County Down
