THE ANGEL LADY

By Josie Whitehead

Angel Lady (The)

I sat upon a windswept rock
   And gazed across the shore.
The stormy ocean flung its surf
   Amidst tumultuous roar.

A figure slowly came in view,
   A woman dressed in white
With flowing hair of chestnut gold,
    A vision of delight!

 

The threatening clouds above the beach

     Cast shadows on the sand
And teasing sunbeams danced around
      As if at her command.

The sweetest song I ever heard
    Came drifting through the air.
An angel would but sing as she -
    My love, with chestnut hair.

Another could not steal my heart
    As she had captured mine,
And, as she drifted through the mist,
      I felt quite lost in time.

Then, as the thought of angel song
    Flashed quickly through my mind,
This celestial being disappeared
    From view of humankind.

I searched the beach my eyes transfixed,
    To glimpse her beauteous form,
But this heavenly being left our world
    In the breakers of the storm.
