Cowgirl Poetry: One Hundred Years of Ridin' and Rhymin' by Virginia Bennett

The heart and soul of the West is seen through the eyes of its women—cowgirl poets writing about jinglin’ the horses home, haymaking time, cowboy courtin’, livin’ free, July thunderstorms, and real wealth, among other things close to a cowgirl’s heart. And, of course, there are plenty of poignant observations on life and men.

Read an Excerpt

Wild Morning Glories by Sharlot Hall

Once in a wind-swept, sunburned land Where long, rough hills come crawling down, Crowding the little valley hard
With buttes like paws, rock-clawed and brown, One great split boulder in the sand Made of spots of shade where wild vines grew, All hung with swinging bells of bloom--In sunset colors pink and blue.

Small morning glory vines that clung Back in rock rifts dim and cool--And two ranch children all through May
Were tardy every day at school.
