Ride Like the Wind

" Ride Like the Wind " Off now we go!... horses carryin' us fast~ Down through dust canyons & townfolk aghast~ We rode as a wind from hell we did so~ Knowin' only we knew... not where we'd go~ No answer we had of our tremendous fast flight~ No clues or reason nor practical sight~ Just ride... ride... ride hard & down~ Through canyon's depths & unsolid ground~ 'Til we'd seen what... was much as never before~ That o'such... had before been folklore~ Guns quickly drawn & hammers cocked back~ 'Twas not courage but wisdom... that which we lacked~ So did end... final ride of the four~ Knockin' then... on heaven's dark door~ So songs were sung & still to this day~ Of cowboys most often we've heard 'em so say~ Ride then ride... ride fast as that wind~ For you know such as that... has been your great sin~ Step from that saddle back to fair earth~ You've proven your courage & so your true worth~ Yet no such thing could ever so be~ For that cowboy must... of all things be free~ Ride then ride... ride fast as your wind~ Damn... damn cowboy... we know what's your sin~ SeaWolf ©

    Brings back sweet memories of when I used to ride. I can feel the wind in my hair as I ride with you in this great poem.
