They thought themselves ready, they thought themselves braced,
But soon through their minds all manner of thoughts raced.
Astonished and amazed was one Pinkie Pie,
Giggling as she looked down on Equestria's sky.
Fluttershy cowered and her mind filled with dread,
Wishing she was home fast asleep in her bed.
Rarity did her best to hold in her own fright,
As she stared in awe at the beauty of the sight.
Applejack grabbed hold in wonder and alarm,
They'd never believe this one back at the farm.
RD looked on and for once she was floored,
This was much higher than she'd ever soared.
Twilight stood free of gravity's fetter,
Thinking this might take more than simply one letter!
