 Poems by The Old Cowboy


I was stationed in the state of Nevada in 1968 when I wrote this
 while standing guard duty.


    I watch the sun raise in early morn
    It climbs the snow capped mountains
    Through blue skies on its endless flight
    It reaches its peak and heads for night
    Watching it set on the desert plain
    Fading slow like a dying campfire
    Soon its gone and stars fill the night
    Full sky of wonderful sights
    Then the night is gone
    I watch the sun raise in early morn

                             Edwin J. Smith
                             The Old Cowboy
                                  June 1968
