The term "Poet Lariat" was first used by Mark Twain in his book Innocents Abroad.
Cowboy poetry captures the rhythm of horses hooves on the trail. -- Attributed: Badger Clark
For his rope twirling acts, Will Rogers called himself the Poet Lariat.
Cowboys of the mid-1800s, most uneducated, wrote as they rode, capturing the rhythm of the trail, pacing themselves with consistent meter, and using end rhymes to assist in remembering their poems.
Real cowboy poetry has consistent meter (as in the traditional ballad) and true rhymes (as love/dove). -- Clark Crouch
