Not Yet Poem by Cowboy Ron Williams

Not Yet

Rating: 4.9

Sunset approaching
riding my horse
past the old cemetery
he suddenly stopped short

Why did you stop,
you crazy nag?
Come, on, let's get
on home

but then I thought I heard
a voice calling my name

There's a place for you
here in this soft earth
said the voice

We've been waiting for you
a long, long time

You have cheated death
too many times and it
is time to give up
and just relax
here with us

You don't understand
this modern world anyway
and it has left you behind

Your memory is fading
and you have forgotten
most of the stories
that you were going to share
on that stupid poetry website

My horse started up then
and began turning in to
the graveyard, but I gave
a jerk on the reins and said

Not yet, Trigger. Let's
mosey on home and
think about this
a little bit more

Good choice! There is always one last poem to publish on this wacky website, that is as ornery as an unrhymed bucking bronco.

Well penned poetic expression. Full of hope, wit and positivity. Even death van deceive for we want to live. Beautiful pictures snd beautiful poetry.
