    For my niece, Cordasia Henderson...the one we call Bird...

    Horses jump
    And the Magic Magenta Bird flies.
    The quiet one
    Surrounds herself with books in seclusion
    Taking care of the younger ones.
    Her look tells me she has sweet secrets.
    I won't dare ask
    Just glad they make her smile
    When she thinks no one is looking.

    She mounts
    Boots knee high
    Horse dark and brown
    Like her.
    She's marveled at because she's the only one
    Until she rides.
    Then it doesn't matter
    Because the Magic Magenta Bird flies
    Takes hold
    Takes charge
    Is in control.
    All belongs to her.

    Nearly 16
    But an old soul
    The Magic Magenta Bird flies
    On Pegasus
    Wings high.
    She's a superhero
    With two sides.
    One's rather shy
    The other soars
    I'm so proud of my niece
    Seeing the world from a view we've never known.
    Old girl is fly.
    She's on a horse.
