THE TRAIL, (my first and last attempt at Cowboy poetry)

Okay, in honor of National Cowboy Poetry Week, and PLittle, I thought I'd try my hand at a little Cowboy poetry myself.  I think it is now safe to say that Cowboy Poetry should be left to Cowboys and Poets.  May I present my one and only Cowboy poem, titled The Trail, an impromtu poem inspired by of 3 cups of very strong coffee.

You ride all day
'Til the sun sinks down
Behind the mountain peak.
And only then,
As the daylight fades
Do you stop to sleep.
In a blink of an eye
You're back on the path,
A trail that never ends.
Throughout the journey,
Your horse and your gun
Remain your only friends.
