Cow Camp



Cow Camp
 Away in the mountains, where grizzly bears live,
 Grandpa Bill has a cabin so neat. 
He stays overnight when he's herding his cows,
 and cooks up his beans and his meat. 

 When I grow bigger and able to help, 
I'll go out there as his man.
 I'll help build the fences and chase the odd bull;
 I'll be ready next year, if I can!

 --written by Grandma Betty Kilgour, for her grandchildren

P.S.
Thanks for letting me read the cow camp story from 2010. Deep family history. You're carrying on Grandma's tradition of writing about it.
