Best Poem of Charles Badger Clark

A Cowboy's Prayer

(Written for Mother)

Oh Lord, I've never lived where churches
I love creation better as it stood
That day You finished it so long ago
And looked upon Your work and called it
I know that others find You in the light
That's sifted down through tinted window
And yet I seem to feel You near tonight
In this dim, quiet starlight on the plains.

I thank You, Lord, that I am placed so well,
That You have made my freedom so com-
That I'm no slave of whistle, clock or bell,
Nor weak-eyed prisoner of wall and street.

Read the full of A Cowboy's Prayer

The Old Cow Man

I rode across a valley range
I hadn't seen for years.
The trail was all so spoilt and strange
It nearly fetched the tears.
I had to let ten fences down
(The fussy lanes ran wrong)
And each new line would make me frown
And hum a mournin' song.
Oh, it's squeak! squeak! squeak!
