Werehorses for White Wolf’s Werewolf: the Apocalypse
By Laura M. Henson © 2005
Chapter Four 
 Joachim, the Silver, the Horse-in- the-Moon Looked down from a nighttime skyTo a ribbon of dark that was river With his Moon’s unwinking eye.“Come down!” the beech trees whispered With a dried leaf rattle and hiss.“Come down,” they sang with a breezy snarl,“Come down for a beech trees kiss.”  Joachim, the Ageless, the Horse-in-the-MoonWhose heart beat ardent with time Looked past to the forest’s dark secretsWhere his shadow lay pooled in the pines.“Come dance,” the meat-eaters invited, Hiding their hunger in song,“Come dance in the forest among us,” “We’ll spin as we play to your song.”  Joachim, the Waxing, the Horse-in-the-Moon Looked down in the farmlands to see Men with their whips and their bridles,“We’ll ride on your back- You’ll be free.”  Joachim the Waning, wise and aloof  Remained where he was in the sky. Like a spider, slow spinning, A web’s end to beginning,Watching the mortals pass by.
- “The Horse-in-the-Moon” from Mary Stanton’s the“Heavenly Horse from the Outermost West”

“Funny thing how that Avalanche came up on that howling horse. He’d forgotten that, but it came back to him now, sharp an’ clear. That big old animal a howlin’ like a wolf, and then the snow crashen’ down on them and buryin’ poor Great Knox and somehow jest missing all the horses.”
