Cowboy Corral







she loved him madly, knew all his sins

no effort to change his rough exterior

he worked the fields, town and country

always finding his way to forgiveness

a lasso ’round her heart pulled tight

loved her fine but thought her simple

all that was simple was her willingness

constantly pardoning his transgressions

patiently waiting for boy to become man

hurtful cowboy jokes with other boys

her reigning him in from their demise

shaking her head in final realization

a note she thought he might comprehend

“you should have removed your spurs

don’t you know, you’re not my first rodeo”
