I found this image stashed in some random file on my desktop.
Does anyone know the source?


  1. Tim Lane's "The Cowboy's Lament."

    "He’s thinking about peace and quiet
    and the warmth of a woman’s arms.
    Not just any woman’s arms:
    A woman of poetry,
    a woman of the earth and salt
    and incomprehensible words.
    Someone musical.
    Someone who didn’t talk too much.

    He’s thinking of all the weary miles
    between himself and his salvation.

    He’d had it bad and he’d had it good;
    he’d been rich and poor:
    Now he was just trying to get to Heaven
    before they closed the door."
