C.C. Walsh wrote this poem in 1915. We might call it "Classic Cowboy Poetry". I edited it down to 14 verses (from 28) for live performance, but the video is condensed as well. C.C. Walsh was a lawyer and a banker, but his passion was poetry. He was known by many of the time as the Poet Laureate of Texas - or perhaps the Poet Lariat? Anyway, he sure paints a vivid picture.
