A Cowboy's Love Poem by Dr Dillip K Swain

A Cowboy's Love

Rating: 5.0

A young jubilant boy
Steers a herd of cows
To the open green fields
They graze unflinchingly
He sits pretty cool, relaxed
And watches them munch
On the fresh emerald grass
And he finds a safe place
To sit and enjoy proceedings
And the lovely surroundings

On the approach of dusk
He calls the herd back
By blowing his flute
Like Krishna's flute
That throbs the air
The setting sun glints
The vesper sky winks
The flowing river sings

Lovely water pot passes
With cham-cham hum of anklet
Her blushing is lively yet covert
The cowboy feels the spark
The girl waves him from the dark

Speaking of 'water pot', DO YOU MEAN 'on the head of a young woman'? I would say 'the girl waves AT him.....' bri ;)
