 Poems by The Old Cowboy

Pale Light


                            
                    Have you ever sat upon a stump
                    As the late evening sun goes down
                    So beautiful that your throat fills with a lump
                    Listening to all the wilderness sounds
      
                    When the last bright rays slip behind a hill
                    Coolness of night arrives from its hiding place
                    Call of night birds so shrill
                    The moon rises and lights your loves face
 
                    Pale light reflecting from her hair
                    A sparkle in her deep eyes
                    Her fragrance so sweet fills the air
                    Gentleness of her breath with a sigh

                    Warmth from the touch of her hand
                    Softness of her youthful laugh
                    The flame in your heart she fans
                    Knowing with her forever you'll travel life's path
                                                                                                      
                                                             Edwin J. Smith
                                                           The Old Cowboy Poet
                                                                  1996
