A Westerner
by E.A. Brininstool
A Westerner by E.A. Brininstool

I knowed he was a Westerner
I knowed it by his talk;
I knowed it by his headgear,
I knowed it by his walk.
His face was bronzed and fearless;
His eye was bright and keen,
That spoke of wide, vast ranges
I knowed that he had seen.

Somehow I knowed he’d ridden
The range-lands of the West;
His speech was bunkhouse patter—
The kind I love the best.
He brought a hint of prairies,
Of alkali and sage;
Of stretches wide and open —
The Western heritage.

I knowed he was a Westerner
Just from the way he done;
His footgear, too, proclaimed him
A stalwart Western son…
He had “the makin’s” with him,
And I could not forget
His bed-ground from the manner
He rolled his cigaret.

He brought with him the freedom
Of that great Western land;
Where grassy billows, endless,
Sprawl out on ev’ry hand.
The city noises chafed him,
And each skyscraper tall
Seemed like grim barriers risin’,
Or some deep canyon wall.

He seemed a part and parcel
Of countries wide and far,
Where great herds dot the mesas,
Out where the cowmen are.
I knowed he was a Westerner
Becuz he was so free
In yellin’ “Howdy pardner!”
When he was passin me.

by E.A. Brininstool, from Trail Dust of a Maverick, 1914
