Cowboys Are Cool



COWBOYS ARE COOL!
(A phonic poem for children)
I'm Casper Cox, the cowboy, and I ride a cowboy horse,
Cantering over the countryside, in cowboy clothes, of course.
The cows are my companions; the coyote often calls.
I'd rather have a cowboy's life than live in castle walls.

I'm Casper Cox, the cowboy. The cactus leaves are thick,
And, if I'm not too careful, they will give me quite a prick.
A cottage may be cosy and a couch may give me ease,
But I'd rather have a cowboy's life than comforts such as these.

I'm Casper Cox, the cowboy, and the desert nights are cold.
I curl up by the campfire, as the cavemen did of old.
I drink my cup of cocoa and I contemplate the stars.
I'd rather have a cowboy's life than a million motor cars.

A lovely phonic poem that is educational on more than one level ! It also re-inforces an appreciation for the simpler things in life , by rhyming , in a fun & light-hearted way , that would appeal to kiddies !
