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!

Daddy, everybody knows that's really you, and not Dillip Swain. It has the wrong picture for him, and if they click on it, will it lead back to the real Dillip and his poems? Of course not. Everyone, I apologize for my dad.
