Legs! out of gratitude comes/a picture of nothing

(poetry diary 40) Got stupid leg cramps.  Went looking for poems about legs.  I like this one by W.S. Merwin, which compares legs to horses:

TO MY LEGS

 

Tonight I look at you

as I never did before

and think of the old horses

the little I was told about them

 

out of gratitude

comes a recognition

of being too late
