“A Book of Verses underneath the Bough…

…A Jug of Wine, a Loaf of Bread – and Thou.”
Those immortal words from The Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyám capture the eternal place of poetry in love affairs. And for all you cowboys and cowgirls out there, that’s something worth thinking about. So stretch your hatband a little and consider a book of verses for a Valentine’s Day gift—it’s coming sooner than you think.
May I suggest Goodnight Goes Riding and Other Poems.
Granted, they’re not exactly love poems. But what cowgirl or cowboy doesn’t love horses. And cows. And rodeo. Branding. Outlaws. Cowboy hats and boots. And all kinds of other Western things we all know—and love.
Right now, for a limited time, for all you pixel-peepers who read on those battery-powered gadgets, Pen-L Publishing has marked down the Kindle edition of Goodnight Goes Riding and Other Poems to just 99 cents. Less than a dollar. A mere pittance.
This lower-than-low price for a book of verses will probably leave enough jingle in your jeans to buy a jug of wine and a loaf of bread to go with it.
(But it may be best not to let on how little you paid.)
