The Old Cowboy


Crystal blue smile
Peeking thru wrinkles of tan
A faraway gaze
Ageless story of man

A lifetime of choking trail dust
Left his words but a rasp
Frequent meetings with defiant mustangs
Left his gait but a shuffle

I see in silent azure twinkle
Man of iron
Heart like a kitten

Hands that could tame the fiercest bronc
Have my eyes widening in transfixed wonder
As he gently cradles a newborn foal
With grasp of leather
Fingers like claws
Velvet touch
Gentle stroke
Tender mercy
Angel smile
The old cowboy
Has travelled many a mile

Excellent, being an old cowboy myself, I found it particularly drawing. Thanks.

Good job, once again. I have found that through your poetry, you express people's lives and stories very well.
