Just what is a cowboy poet?
I’m beginning to ponder that thought
‘Cause some folks don’t think I fit the mold.
Guess I don’t look as they think I ought?
Well, I’m not really a cowgirl,
Only a rancher affiliated with cattle.
But the poems that I spin as I ponder
Are based on ranch life including a saddle.
I’ve ridden long miles cross the prairie,
Spent many years in the hills of sand
And I’m most happy to say,
“I wear the Master’s Brand”
My poems tend to have a ranch flavor,
Often telling about things of the life.
One thing I will tell you for certain,
Cow country sees plenty of strife!
I wouldn’t trade this life for another.
I’ve lived elsewhere and it just don’t take.
Watching wildlife and grazing cattle
It’s a life I don’t care to forsake.
Maybe I don’t fit the mold set by some,
I’ve been a maverick according to some
So I just write Cow Country poetry
And pray that to Jesus others will come.
