Yahoo, yee-haw, yippee-ki-yay
another Stampede is underway.
The city is buzzing
with tourists from afar,
chuck wagons and horses continue to star.
Cowboy hats, and cowboy boots
two-step, stomp and dance to wee hours,
the midway offers spinning rides
and exotic food to devour.
It’s a great big party
for one and all,
Calgary’s Stampede –
better than a Game of Thrones ball.
Indeed better, even though I’ve yet to experience the famed Stampede. Revel in it!
It’s worth experiencing at least once in one’s lifetime 🙂
I really like this! It’s fun and uplifting and the photo is great too! Thank you for sharing!
Hey, Mary, you have certainly captured the thrill and the spirit of the Stampede. The pacing of our poem is very like the thundering hooves of horses! I haven’t experienced the Stampede (lots of reasons why) but I know millions of visitors over the years have come to the party and loved it. What an appropriate poem to write!
