out on the open range

23 Apr

I miss those lazy days

eyes squinting in the sun

out on the open range

grasshoppers jumping up in waves

attaching themselves to my back and legs

the grass is long and there is plenty of it

and later I know a shady spot

near a pond

where we can all relax and roll about

out on the open range so long ago

it felt like it could last forever

until the first arrows

and then the first shots

My hide was more valuable

than my life
