The Last of the Cowboys
By Mary Carolyn Davies
THEY have gone down like the sunset, who like the sun
Were mighty and high and scornful; their hour is done.
Slowly into the night they ride, each one.
They have gone down like the sunset, sharp on the hill.
A moment against the sky they stood, until        5
The dark came down and they met it, stoic and still.
