The Far Horizon Beckons Poem by Cowboy Ron Williams

The Far Horizon Beckons

Rating: 4.4

Friends are most precious, and I've had a few,
And on this website, it's been mostly fun.
Right now I have some other things to do;
Excuse me now, I'll grab my horse and run.
Will I come back some day? I'll have to see.
Each day I live to me's a precious prize.
Let no one here dare shed a tear for me;
Let all remain with dry and tearless eyes.
May all of you receive the very best;
Your happiness is all that I desire.
Please do your best to always pass the test
And throw your useless cares into the fire.
Loud be your praises to the God above.
So long, my friends; I'll think of you with love.

Cowboy, if you really are saying goodbye, you have done it in style. This acrostic Shakespearean sonnet is truly a masterpiece. Happy trails, my friend, and five stars to put in your lonely sky!

forgive me, Cowboy, my trails have been very rough and I've lost some of my tough, but I have missed you and many of the other fine poets here, missed you all dearly as well as myself--this site would lose its flavor, its fun, and its savor without you here to ride the trails with

I came back to this and read more comments and find why you came crawling back: Susan Williams, horse-lover. ;)

I didn't come crawling back. I was riding high in the saddle.

You think Susan is the reason I came back? I love Susan like a sister, but she has forgotten me. I last sent her a message on May 30, to which she has not responded.
