Thank you for the link! There is also some really nice poems in honour of RR and DE at their tribute websites that you can get to from the royrogers.com homepage-and there was two of them that made me cry alot when I read them.
'Weep not but think that I have past
Before thee o'er a sea of gloom
Have anchored safe and rest at last
Where tears and mourning cannot come' ~Emily Bronte

ROY & DALE ALONG THE TRAIL


Roy and Dale rode the range together with nary a tumble nor awkward fall

Thru thick and thin they stuck like glue to their saddles and one another

Thru storms of fame, glory and hard felt rain, they braved the trail so proud and tall

Then one bleak day, we found them gone and wished for them, alas in vain

We found them lost and replaced with wooden soldiers and still dizzier diva dames

Possessing neither the rock ribbed glint, nor gift of gentle heart

That had seen us Boomers thru darkened valleys to wide fertile plains in view

And ever more hopeful blue, blue skies.....our own Happy Trails, we owe, so much to you.

******************************************
*Original Roy Rogers/Dale Evans Tribute Poem Penned by Eowawa (Vietnam Vet) 3/11/07 GB RR & DE Always!

That is beautiful Eowawa! Thank you for sharing it with us!

I wrote a RRDE poem once, it wasn't anything like the ones that you can find on the internet.

'Weep not but think that I have past
Before thee o'er a sea of gloom
Have anchored safe and rest at last
Where tears and mourning cannot come' ~Emily Bronte

Those are nice. Yours is beautiful too Eowawa. I've written a few, I'll have to dig them up and post them here, both were very good I thought.
Be without fear in the face of your enemies. Be brave and upright that God may love thee. Speak the truth even if it leads you to your death. Safeguard the helpless. That is your oath. (strikes him across the face) That is how you shall remember it. Rise a knight!
Knighting out of Kingdom of Heaven

You will listen to me. Listen! The Bretheren will still be looking to us, the Black Pearl, to lead. And what will they see? Frightened bilge rats aboard a derelict ship? No! No, they will see free men and freedom! And what the enemy will see is the flash of our cannons! They will hear the ring of our swords and they will know what we can do. By the sweat of our brows, and the strength of our backs, and the courage of our hearts. Gentlemen, hoist the colors.

Farewell to the Hero
In Memory of Roy Rogers

The willows sway, the adders mumble,
A sweet farewell,
To the man of bravery and honor,
Who millions knew so well.

He rode along our silver screens
For over forty years,
His life was not all laughter,
Some was sorrow, some was tears.

Always, not matter the trouble,
Through thick, and through thin,
He braved the dangers and laughed along,
With every bit of whim.

He taught the young and old alike
That sorrows do not last,
If we must, we cry a bit,
Then forget the past.

So when I heard the mournful news,
That he had gone away,
I was sad, for just a bit,
Then glad he'd seen Jesus that day.

Be without fear in the face of your enemies. Be brave and upright that God may love thee. Speak the truth even if it leads you to your death. Safeguard the helpless. That is your oath. (strikes him across the face) That is how you shall remember it. Rise a knight!

The Last of the Silver Screen Cowboys
Dedicated to Roy Rogers

He was the last of the silver-screen cowboys
The last of that honourable racwe,
The last to uphold truth and justice,
The last to look danger in the face.

He was the last of the silver-screen cowboys
Who were, but now are gone,
The men who taught our boys honesty,
To love, and be strong.

He was the last of the silver-screen cowboys
For gun-totin' is now in the past,
Savin' the ladies and catchin' the villians,
In that he was the last.

He was the last of the silver-screen cowboys
The last to whistle a tune,
To the beat of his horses' hoofbeats,
As he gallops tword danger and gloom.

Yes, he was the last of the silver-screen cowboys
The last to gallop away,
To the land of celestial glory,
And an eternal day.

As the last of the silver-screen cowboys
He was the last to depart,
To ride o're the hill to glory,
The last to get the wish of his heart.

Be without fear in the face of your enemies. Be brave and upright that God may love thee. Speak the truth even if it leads you to your death. Safeguard the helpless. That is your oath. (strikes him across the face) That is how you shall remember it. Rise a knight!

I think that I like the first one a little better. I'd actually forgotten about them,
but then today I was looking for something and I came across them. The first one
started to make me cry as I was reading it, and I thought, gosh, I didn't realize
I wrote this good!

Sometimes if you come back to something you did a while ago you find out how really good it is. I've done that a few times.

Yeah. Probably the time that happened to me that was the funniest was a day that I
was working in the kitchen(it wasn't my idea)and Becka came up and said, "Listen to
this, Ruth." Then she proceeded to read a scene out of a paper pamphlet she was
holding. She finished and I said, "Wow, that's really good. Is that out of Nina's
Lost Valley Landgrab?" she looked at me weakly and said, "No, it's out of your
story, Ridin' down the Sunset Trail." And I was like, "Oh wow, you mean I wrote
that?" It was a scream, and Becka is now convinced I'm really crazy!

Really Fine stuff there RRF....you should send both of those in to the yodeler site so more people can share in them.

I'd like to do that, but I'm not sure how to. Do you have any ideas of how
that's done?

You would probably e-mail the owner of the site and ask to see if he can put up you're RR poems.

Those where some really good poems. I'm not overly fond of poetry and can't write a verse, but I liked those!!!! Thank's Texas Jan, for giving the link to those! I never would have found them otherwise!!!!!!!!!!
He's the King of the Cowboys, a legend in his time a man who loves his country, where he will always ride! Saddled up on his golden palamino, with a six-gun at each side, he has given us precious memorys and Happy Trails for me and you!
