JEAN THE STORYTELLER
I'm wearing a sparkling blue ring,
from precious Mother Emma Jean.
This ring gives me power to story-tell,
Emma Jean told stories and she did it well.
Now she told a story I will never forget,
she weaves the story of the "Headless Horseman".
telling her story in Missouri at a really young age,
better then Grimm's Fairy Tales writes it on the page.
Her voice changes in fluctuation and stance,
weaving words like a rhythmic dance.
Even though Emma Jean's gone,
I will tell her stories so they will live on.
