Two panel comic. Comic panel one shows wild horse standing on a small hill against the backdrop of the starry sky, flames and red smoke. It towers above the father and daughter who are looking up at it whilst hugging. The flames are overlaid with stanza 4 of Epona. Comic panel two shows close up of the child, clinging onto her dad's coat so the material ruffles.

One panel comic shows half of child's face. They have long, flowing dark hair and a red bow. Their eye is wide and the pupil sparkles.  The image is overlaid with the final stanza of Epona.
