The first line of the poem "The Horses" by Edwin Muir is this: "Barely a twelvemonth after the Seven Day's war that put the world to sleep, late in the evening the strange horses came."


There is also a poem by him called simply "Horses."  It is 28 lines.  It begins "Those lumbering horses in steady plow...."


The two are different poems, so you need to be certain if you are looking for "The Horses" or just "Horses."
