Recalled Haiku...

Several years ago; i was reading a Haiku Collection and came across one that almost glued itself to my head...
But not quite...

i seemed to recall that it was a long poem with a traveler that journeyed long and hard,
Then stopped at a lodge to visit a friend, and left his horse outside;
After some time;
The snow had begun to fall,
and the last line described the horse's situation...

So i finally went to the trouble
( typing up a line into a search engine )
of looking for this epic poem
and discovered that it was substantially shorter than i recalled it...!!!

Tethered horse;
in both stirrups.
