 Poems by The Old Cowboy

Never One the Same


I was stationed in Nevada in 1968. I wrote this in June.
Five months before I left for Viet Nam.
I was standing guard duty when I wrote this.  


                Sands

      Winds blow the sands around my feet
      I watch each grain never one the same
      Watching men as they hurry through the day
      Likes sands never one the same
      But the sands go on blowing with the wind
      Man soon grows old and than hes gone
      But the sands go on and on
      Never one the same


                                      Edwin J. Smith
                                       The Old Cowboy
                                           1968
