I love Westerns.
... and the intent of MyFavoriteWesterns.com is to celebrate Western Movies/Film - old and new.
This site will eventually show my top 30 favorite Westerns - or more. I will have original graphic work with regular updates.
All this - and more ...
Yee Haw ... !!

Based on what I could gather up, the poem was written by Emily Dickinson, but I am unable to find the year she wrote it. Also, great Leonard Cohen song there, it gives me McCabe & Mrs. Miller vibes – fitting given that your website is dedicated towards great westerns 🙂
Hey John, this poor boy had a couple of Cohen albums in my collection. That’s from his first Album – that also had Suzanne. Amazing that you can recall it from McCabe & Mrs. Miller – a movie that really knocked me out of my chair. That scene where the kid guns down the other kid on the bridge – still locked in my consciousness. Time for a re-watch.
The song you chose might not have been played in the film, but it sounds (and I mean this as a compliment) similar to how he sings the songs he wrote for McCabe & Mrs. Miller 🙂 Speaking of which, McCabe & Mrs. Miller was actually shot in Canada 🙂
I didn’t think SHE wrote it, but she was one of a big bunch of romantic poets, so somewhere in that group is probably your author. Also, even if you have just a few words out of place or spelled differently (poets often change word spelling to make the poem more poetic) — it can make finding it nearly impossible. Computer are just so LITERAL.
Ah… OK …
I think I have enough of it right. No problem there.
Strange. Right now it looks like I won’t be able to locate it.
I think I’ll go onto one of these literary groups and see if they know what it is.
Somebody has to know.
