Overview

Each poem is about some person, place or event that has transpired or been inspired by the Brush Country of Central Texas. Each poem has its own ambiance and its own rhythm. Whether rugged and rough hewn as the tangled underbrush that grows in stubborn profusion beneath the stately oaks and scrubby mesquites or as finely wrought as the fragile flowers that bloom in shady glades and hidden ...

BRUSH COUNTRY

Ribbons of light in the east unrolled

Forcing night to loosen its silent hold

On the dry Brush Country, calm and serene.

Then the quiet of the tranquil scene

Was broken as from the hard, cracked ground

There rose a mournful, whimpering sound;

A rabbit caught in the underbrush

Moaned into the tranquil hush.

Such a plaintive cry, it twisted and rose

Across the landscape's quiet repose;

Calling to the arid scene

A coyote-predator, lank and lean.

He stopped, and turned his mangy head,

Sniffed the air, then with deadly tread

Walked stiff-legged to the very spot

In the underbrush where the rabbit was caught.

    Awesome poetry with a western flavor...

    ***** This is a terrific collection of poetry with a western flavor. There are eighty-one poems in all. Some touch upon the wildness and harshness of the wild, such as 'Brush Country' and 'Hide & Seek' ... Some touch upon nature, such as 'Wild Flowers' and 'Rebirth' ... Quite a few are filled with humor, such as 'Midwife' and 'Jake' ... But most of these will make the reader picture the Wild West and the towns of long ago, such as 'Simon and Seth' and 'Sam'. Highly recommended for all fans of poetry, western novels, or historical romance novels. *****
