With the NHL All-Star game being played this weekend we are reminded of a commercial for EA Sports NHL 15 video game that has Boston Bruins star Patrice Bergeron reciting a beat-themed hockey poem.
The poem, Feelings, is set in a dark cafe. Bergeron makes his way to the stage in full hockey uniform. He begins to recite the poem as a bass line keeps time. Images of NHL 15 flash on a screen behind the moonlighting all-star.

Originally built as a brewery in 1854, Schwenk's Hall in Cimarron, New Mexico was converted into a gambling hall and saloon in 1875. Those wild west days are long gone and the place is now a curio shop.
One of the curious items that we discovered was a vintage postcard with A Cowboy's Prayer written on it. The author of the poem was listed as Author Unknown.
With our curiosity piqued we purchased the card and set about sleuthing this unknown author. Can a poet truly remain unknown?
