Poem: The Cowboy

In the mountains of Wyoming he did ride, here came the snow drift and the frozen tide. With unsure footing he stumbled through the cold. His horse by his side and gun strapped to hip, his frozen fingers could not grip. With shaking chills that racked his frame, his breath a fog, his boots did shine with the frozen crystals of time. He got caught between Cheyenne and Afton in this blizzard of a century; on his freedom he was set to ride. Facing fences and chasing pride. The blanket did little to shield the frost that attached to every inch of flesh even beneath the clothing that wrapped his skin. He soon tripped and cursed in vein, on his knees he did stay screaming and begging for help that day. Within the moments the wind did whip a horrid stench did fill the air; a swirl of snow did consume the bleak atmosphere that could sign his death.
