 Poems by The Old Cowboy

Waves of Grass Gone

  The wind moves the grass likes waves on the sea
  Deep blue skies and towering clouds of white
  The great buffalo roam the plain's free
  Above the sea of grass eagles sail in flight

  Wild horses race with the prairie winds
  As deer watch from a ridge so high
  This beautiful sight only seen by the red men
  Stretching farther then the crow flies

  This great valley created by the great sprite above
  Touched with all the colors in the world
  Gently placed on this earth with his love
  So thrilling to see  it makes the mind swirl

  Soon its wonder shall disappear and be no more
  The white man will come with fences and barb wire
  Changing this land and  its great contour
  Wanting only to build their own empire

  The plow will cut the land and destroy the grass
  The fences will halt the roaming buffalo and wild ponies
  As the white man and his wagons on this prairie trespass
  How could they against this land commit such larcenies

  Surly the great sprite never intended for this to happen
  The spoiling of his great master piece
  This waste of beauty should be forbidden
  But alas the white man will never cease
                                                                  Edwin J. Smith
                                                              The Old Cowboy poet
