Subject(s): Competition; Cowboys; Ranch Life; West (U.s.); Southwest; Pacific States


A PATTERING rush like the rattle of hail
When the storm king's wild coursers are out on the trail,
A long roll of hoofs,— and the earth is a drum!
The centaurs! See! Over the prairies they come!

A rollicking, clattering, battering beat;
A rhythmical thunder of galloping feet;
A swift-swirling dust-cloud — a mad hurricane
Of swarthy, grim faces and tossing, black mane;

Hurrah! in the face of the steeds of the sun
The gauntlet is flung and the race is begun!
