 Poems by The Old Cowboy

Sixty Six Years Ago Pearl Harbor


Was early on Sunday morning 1941
When from the sky terror came hidden by the sun

A sneak attack on a sleeping giant would change the world
Bombs dropped men die fire and smoke whirl

Wave after wave of planes flew in
Committing the world's greatest sin

Ships sank planes destroyed on the ground
Fear and horror spread all around

Many lives were lost in this senseless attack
Setting a course from which America could not turn back

Sixty six years ago, most who survived are now gone
Let us never forget, pass the tragic story on

How men of honor, strength and fortitude
Sacrificed all for this Country, me and you

                                                       Edwin J. Smith
                                                       The Old Cowboy
