The Alamo

The Alamo  By, Francisco Alfredo Lopez

The blue sky breaking through the white clouds
as the sun shines on a small church casting its
shadow on a desert sandy trail
moments later several cowboys ride in
with their horses to visit the small Texas town
and the wind begins to blow dirt and dust all around
the sheriff comes out to see what is going on
then heads back into the jail to do more work
while over at the bar the bartender serves drinks
all around while the customers are having fun
and enjoyment can be found
it is just another ordinary day in a little Texas town
that is destine to grow into a very special place
we call the Alamo.

The Fast Stallion

The Fast Stallion  By, Francisco Alfredo Lopez

Through the hills and mountains near an
old country farm the wooded fence broken
with no gate at all and just green grass and
weeds decorate the lonely barn and home
but out from the barn door runs out a young horse
brown in color and quick as a whip
runs across the fields and into the hills to get some
water then returns to eat some grass and hay
before preparing to be a race horse during the day
he runs and strides around the track so many
times for anybody to count but at a speed
that it appears he is flying through the air
the jockey on top of him pats him on the back
telling him that he is ready and almost there
because one day he will be the fastest stallion
on the race track everywhere.
