morning till dawn


From morning till dawn

I heard the song of a whippoorwill
My heart it did thrill
I saw the flight of a morning dove
Heard its cooing song of love

Saw Loon and swan gliding on the pond
A doe deer and fawn greeting the dawn
A meadow lark trills melodies of blue bells and honey bees
The mocking bird sits his perch for all to see and conduct the symphony

Rosters and crows crack the whip
Sweat rolls down a cooling drip
It’s such a pretty day
To be working in a field of hay

Now the moon should be rising soon
The coyote sings his lonesome tune
The owl’s watchful eyes
Trace the stars across the sky

Thank god a cowboy day is never done
 Thank you and god bless

Absolutely loved your lyrical poetry Roy. Imbued with a strong sense of the love of nature and the celebration of being out under the open sky. The birds singing at the break of dawn and the coyote's calling of the end of a day was really well written. Thank you for sharing a lovely poem.

Can think of no better way than to be out there in the midst of it all, taking in the sounds, smells - although maybe keep away from the cattle for a bit if i'm breathing deeply :)

Roy, not only is your imagery striking, but the sense of sound is clear: the whippoorwill song, the mourning dove coo, meadowlark trill…you have caught the poetry charm and showed the wonders of nature to your readers, giving us a clear picture of a day in the life of one cowboy!
