A Cowboy Duo

This poem was written for a friend who was just that day celebrating the birth of a new grandson. His question to me was whether I had ever written a poem about baby cowboys. I hadn’t, but now I have!

Johnny is a cowboy
with boots and other stuff
just learnin’ of the west
where life is sometimes tough.

He rides a magic horse
across this western land,
just a baby cowboy
a-ridin’ for the brand.

A real experienced hand
at 18 months of age,
he greets new brother, Max,
this youthful cowboy sage.

Now in boots and levis
this duo rides the land,
just two baby cowboys,
learnin’ our west first hand.
