"Whoa Girl"--By Marcus Omer--United States

"Whoa Girl"

There was once a cowgirl named Lynn
with bow-legs from her thigh to her shin.
Those legs had so grown
she'd never get thrown,
but like a top 'round the horse she'd spin.

Marcus Omer got serious about writing after he retired in 1997. He draws his inspiration from the many emotions we experience in life. He has published Of Sunshine and Clouds with iUniverse and The Winding Road with Shadow Poetry. He’s also published in Snippets, The Magic of Words and several issues of Golden Words.
