Bill Jaxon Art - Poem by Marilyn Lott

Don’t you love western paintings?
That depict the way of life back then
A lone cowboy astride his horse
Long days on the range he would spend

The sky also tells much of the story
A dust storm or rain blowing in
You don’t even have to have captions
For the scene creates thoughts once again

A painting of riders in the dark of night
Creates mystery and incredible suspense
Other stories cluster vividly in your mind
That collect with only a glimpse

A rider trudging through a snow storm
Oh so many ideas to chose from
You wonder how these stories unfold
What kind of person this cowboy becomes

Well, folks, that’s what you see in paintings
That Bill Jaxon creates from a brush
He draws you right into wonderful stories
Like thoughts from a still morning hush!
