Unbridled Spirit

-a.l.graysay

Steamy fog, sweet with colored leaves

carpeting the rolling hilltop

of Hensley Settlement.

Babe in arms eyes the barn

a hundred years her elder. Dozens of babies before her.

The first ones the last ones, their story and home.

she but a visitor

protector, holding it in her sight and ears and chubby baby hands.
