THE LONG TRAIL HOME

THE LONG TRAIL HOME

A Poem by Eagle Cruagh

 
THE LONG TRAIL HOME
 
'S been a long day in the saddle
Not everbody has been kind
Some more than others
But I don`t never mind
 
Spurs scratch ole Pieballs ribs
C`mon pardner you know the way
Not many have cotton`d to us
But you been my Pard today
 
Home  Will it still be there
We done some shenanigans we shouldn`t
And the ache for those we love
Kinda leaves  our soul somewhere
 
'T-was a grand adventure this old life
We twisted tails when we shoulda smiled
And smiled when we shoulda layed `em low
You knew that Pard try`n to tell me all along
Just one more hill Pard
We are gett`n awful slow

A wandering spirit, a wandering write..
Feels parched...exhausted even.
Regretting shenanigans!! Blimey, may as well be dead already...hahaha.
Overall, somehow the write has involved hope in the shadows...
Kinda makes me think of cowboy drawing the rim of his hat through his hands while telling a story of dubious nature but all the while, checking from under his brow to gage reaction so as to define the direction for the next plot...haha, loved it!

I can find my own creative thoughts in this poem, i loved the intriquate yet simplistic dialogue of a country boy down south, perfect,
a real western poem 100

Interesting, kind of sad... or maybe it's just my current frame of mind. It feels like you talking about the end of the line not just the end of the day.

Nicely written. Best partners around, horses and livestock guardian dogs.
