Poem- THE OLD BROWN HORSE
 
Summary of the poem 
      The poem 'Old Brown Horse' tells the tale of an old brown horse who is now past his prime. He had seen better days when he was young. Now as he has grown old, He stands near the fence and looks over as if exhausted and tired. He seems to be speaking to the people who passed by the field that he had his day and now he was just watching everyone go about doing their jobs unconcerned about the horses existence. No one seems to be bothered about the horses for now they drive their motor-cars and no one needs the service of a horse more so if he was old, lame and half-blind. So he is left to feed for himself. His coat appears unkempt now whereas by a master who was fond of him. Now that the sends of the time had him useless, His master chose to drive about a motor-car. This what saddens the poor horse. As he had grown old and unfit, his master was oblivious to his presence. He reminisces about his pleasant past and the time he and his master spent together. Once in a while when a considerate person happens to pass by, notices the weary horse resting on the topmost bar if the fence. The person takes pity on the horse and speaks a kind word or two, soothing the horse's agony. The person touches his mane or shaggy coat. The horse lets out a sigh for he does not mind his act of kindness just like he does not mind other' difference.
