ramblings and things

923,717 poems read


We played Cowboys and Indians



When I was a child



Fascinated by  stories of a land



Largely undiscovered and wild.



Read comic books of our heroes



Crockett, Jim Bowie, Buffalo Bill,



And more in adventure designed 



To both captivate and thrill.



Watched Roy and Trigger



Hoppy Cassidy, Tom Mix



Silver Screen Heroes



With maybe another five or six.



 



I discovered Country Music



At a relatively young age



And my love of the Western



Progressed yet another stage.



A love hate relationship



As life and the world moved on:



Faith in the man in the white Hat



Strained, and at times almost gone.



Nearly seventy years later,



Though battered by life,  it seems



I still by and large maintain



Those American Dreams.
