I’m a happy host! September is my favorite month of the year and today is my favorite day of the week—Poetry Friday! On top of all that happiness, I’m super happy to be hosting the Poetry Friday Roundup for my first time. (I know it’s not quite Friday, but I thought it would be nice to post this evening for the early birds.)
Most of the year I join in the Poetry Friday Roundups with my series, A GREAT NEPHEW AND A GREAT AUNT, which features poetry and art. A few weeks ago, I invited any who would like to be a part of the series to contact me. In case you missed that post, click HERE to read it. If you’re wondering just what the series is about, you can visit all the episodes HERE to get a clear picture.
The word Roundup not only makes me think of Poetry Friday, but it also makes me think of cowboys and cattle. That could be because I live in Abilene, Texas where cowboys are still alive and well. Whatever the reason, I was inspired to write this poem, Poets and Cowboys.
Thanks for reading my poem and before you ride away, don’t forget to leave your link 🙂
Saturday update: It seems that Mister Linky is causing problems for some…yours truly included! So here is Amy Ludwig VanDerwater’s link. She shares an exercise that led her to write a howling good poem titled A Wolf Told Me This.
