Margaret Boone Rappaport, Ph.D. Author/Anthropologist- APACHE ANGEL, A Prize-winning Poem


by Margaret Boone Rappaport

Like a heartbeat or the flutter of my lids,
A tremble of the earth when air is still,
A whispering of the wind against my ears,
Wingèd rider black and silver maned appears.

Not a gremlin or an Anglo Saxon troll,
A leprechaun from the days of Irish old,
Eastern wood sprite from a forest wet with rain,
But a horseman from a dry and dusty plain.

Comes he closer and encircles with his steed
And confuses with his galloping speed
All my senses ‘til he puts his mount in check
And he pulls up near the naping of my neck.

Apache Angel! At last a guardian true!
Ghostly warrior from a West that too few knew,
My forefathers and your ancestors, too,
Were sworn enemies. Now I keep peace with you.

  1. Appreciating the time and effort you put into your blog and in depth
    information you present. It’s nice to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same unwanted rehashed material.

  2. Wow that was unusual. I just wrote an really long comment but after I clicked submit my
    comment didn’t appear. Sucks! Anyways, just wanted to say great blog!
    My wife and I often write guest articles for other blog site owners to help increase publicity to our work, as well as provide wonderful articles to weblog owners. It truly is a win win situation! If you’re interested feel free to email me so we can discuss this further.

  3. Greetings!
    I’m wondering if you may be interested in doing a link exchange? I notice your website: and my website are structured around the same topic. I’d really like to swap links or perhaps guest author a write-up for you.
    Thank you.
