Pincher Creek Alberta

Thinking back with fondness to the Cowboy Poetry Gathering that used to be held about this time of year in Pincher Creek. Sadly no longer going, but it is in our memories and poetry still.

Mid June and Cowboy Poets back in town
voices hoarse from long winter’s silence

And a thousand and more are here to hear
for the poets have been listening all year

Listening to the cattle and the coyotes
and the Northern Lights at nights

And they have been reminded
and being reminded they remember
and remembering they come here to remind

And just listening we remember
and unwind
