Cowboy Blue

I ride with a lonely shadow.
Thoughts unraveled comfort him.
Clip-clop through a moonlit canyon.
Twilight wiles the hinterland.

I dismount,
- hitch my nag to a tree.
My horse as well,
Ha! shadow laughs with me.

We pass the night by campfire light.
Fingers gently strumming.
Senses softly humming
a lonesome cowboy tune.

Gently strumming- softly humming,
"The Lonesome Cowboy Blues"

Memories, fantasies,
pleasantries with you,
pleasantries with you,
pleasant dreams-
Cowboy Blue...

S.A. Peck
