Angels of the Cornfield with Ms. Anne-May and I

Dust flew from crisp corn stalks as she fell to beaten knees 
She raised her callus stricken hands towards the heavens
Painfully smiling due to a sunburned soul and age
Angels sung hymns while gently playing strings of the winds tranquil zephyrs  
God whispered in her ear as she wept gratified tears 
I finally understand 

In memory of my Ms. Anne-May.

    "Painfully smiling due to a sunburned soul and age" - very creative! One never realizes how much a human can endure until he/she is faced with disaster. Well written, James. Love, iolanda

    Ooh, Nice. I especially loved the Æsunburned soulÆ part. Souls can be sunburned. That is a great way to describe pain deeper than heart hurt.

    Hello James Awe, what a wonderful tribute to Ms. Anne-May.She must have been quite a woman to have touched you so deeply. We should all have at least one Anne-May in our lives. I'm sure her heart is smiling down upon now with the same understanding you have. Take care hun. Many blessings to you and yours. Oh and thanks so much on your comments on my latest lyrics. Love Light Truth Patricia
