Mark Munzert

Mark Munzert writes rhyme and meters out of appreciation of cowboy mishaps, blessings, sorrows and laughter.  His enthusiastic, heartfelt and animated delivery in relating his Day Workin' Cowboy experiences has earned him the moniker of 'Cowboy Poet of the Northeast'. Mark is a featured columnist and contributor to many equine publications and performs his original poetry regularly to bring cowboy culture wherever he goes. "I've brought horses and cows into this world and I've taken a couple out. I've witnessed grand sunrises and slept under the stars.  I've done chores, built fence, chased cows, and enjoyed the company of fine animals and folks.  I've had more than my fair share of wrecks but count successes as equal learning lessons. I'm moved deeply by the land, animals and ethos of the cowboy lifestyle and I intend to hand it on for the benefit of those that don't have the opportunity to experience it."  Mark is an officer of the WMA - Western Wordsmiths group and also manages the 'Cowboy Poetry' Facebook page as part of his effort to promote cowboy and western culture.
