TexasCowboyIsh's Bio

                Spending a lifetime on the Texas Panhandle prairies in and around Amarillo 
exposes a feller to a unique life style.

	As a youngster and continuing into early manhood, I flirted with the aggregation 
of words to captivate the attention of any audience that would listen; whether that audience 
was a girl, the guy’s, or just whomever would listen. To be honest though, mostly just to 
gather attention. 

	To lasso words with a pen, corral them within the confines of a margin, and brand 
them for my own is a thought that just came to me within the past couple of years. Though I 
was exposed to Cowboy Poetry my entire life, the honored title of a Cowboy Poet was for 
some of my close friends and others, but not a title I considered for myself.    

	Since making the decision to become a Cowboy Poet, I have performed my own 
original poetry from Eastern Tennessee, through-out Texas, up through Illinois, across to 
Idaho, down through Utah to Southern California, and many, many point’s in-between. 

	I’ve been honored to accept many awards from the International Library of 
Poetry, the International Society of Poets, the American Poets Society just to name a few. I 
have some of my works published in books, on CD’s, in magazines, newspapers, newsletters 
and of course many websites.

    Howdy Ms. Carolyn; Thank you so very much for the kind words. I'm not sure if your choice of words would be altogather accurate. Writing Poetry is not very lucrative. Most publishers expect you to pay them to publish your work. I have always wondered how this got started. Without my work they don't have a book. Shouldn't they pay me for my contribution to their book. Sorry about that, Ms. Carolyn. That's kinda a sore-spot with me. Take-Care, my friend. JW ~ TexasCowboyIsh

    Congratulations on our success as a Cowboy Poet, JW. At a ranch in Arizona some friends and I heard a Cowboy singer and the lyrics in his songs told incredible stories of the old West. I bought his CD and really enjoyed listening to it. If you're ever performing in the Daytona area of Florida, be sure to let me know. I fancy myself something of a cowgal! Love, Carolyn
