Cowboy Poetry: “The Cowboy” by Ted & Colt Smith

Written in 1999, this classic poem captures the essence of the cowboy.

The man sits tall on top of his horse he

Has a rope, a whip, and a dog, of course.

He looks at the cattle under the trees as he

Wipes his sweat, he wishes for a breeze.

He’s a tough man, wrinkled and worn

With love in his heart.

For his God, his family and the flag that flies

High he thinks of his dad when he

Was around. How hard he worked from sun up

To sun down but the lessons he taught me out

There on the range were about more

Than horses, cattle and rain.

He Talked about stories and tales of long

Ago late into the night as we watched the fire glow the

Cowboy was my dad one of a kind. I love him with all my

Heart to the end of time.
