PONY EXPRESS

By Duane L Herrmann

Small young men,

fast ponies

to carry mail

between the ends

of eastern and western

rail lines

over empty prairie

and mountains.

They ran flying

in relays

to move the mail

in the shortest time.

Only nineteen months

this business ran

until telegraph wires

were strung,

yet in that time

legends had begun.
