What is that Sound?

Back in the 50's Tonight!

A Red Rose

Golden as Gold can Be!

Robin Fly Away



You See!

The Demise of the Old Cowboy

What Will I Miss?

Ode to Christian "Kiki" Fenot

Bobby and Me

The Highwayman

*Let My Spirit Soar*

C'est La Vie

Les feuilles mortes

Before Destiny takes me!

The Hanging Tree

Lost in Time

The Golden Years?

Beyond The Shadows

A Soilder

Ode to an Old Cowboy Poet named....Jack

Our Flag!

Come on Down!

For The Principles of the Red White and Blue

When it's All Been Said and Done

Lost Souls of Yesteryear

On theDark side of the Moon!

Cactus Jack and the Deveil's Gold

The Wind Blew

Where were you@?

How old areyou?

In the Blink of an Eye

The Scarlet Leaf of Autumn's End

Did you see it!
There it goes again!
Swirling, whirling, gliding
like a magical carpet in the wind.

The warm Autumn air pushing it along.
Slowly twisting, descending, but not quite
touching down.

Then quickly rising back into
the late Autumn sky.
Like a bird, it flutters and  
soars higher and higher.
Can you still see it?
It’s almost out of sight.

Oh! It’s gone!
I wonder where it will eventually land?
That last scarlet leaf of Autumn’s end.
