Cowboys Day

Poem by Bill Simmons

As he steps down
His spurs kick up the sand
He has been riding for five days
He has done the best he can

He can see the clouds that gather
The rain is sure to come
But this cowboy needs his rest
For the work still yet undone

He lays his head upon a log
To rest his weary head
His legs out streached before him
This place is now his bed

While he sleeps the dreams he keeps
It all will come in time
He dreams of a woman
With cattle not on his mind

His steed is tied near his feet
In the distance the cattle call
Soon he drifts fast asleep
He is a cowboy after all.

    Very good I really liked how you introduced that hes a cowboy at the end however it may be a little bit more effective if you placed the first line as the title. It would leave a bit of mystery for the reader and then it ties it all together at the end when you say 'he is a cowboy after all'. I am just suggesting things, I really do think its good though.(Report)Reply
