Comments about James W. Spain
Her Name Was Grace....
This young child
by the name of Grace,
was born into poverty
regardless of her race.
She was fortunate to survive
to the young age of ten,
when you are so poor and homeless
the Lord takes you and you don’t know when.
Her short years were difficult,
of this we are sadly aware,
sometimes poor children
may have parents that just don’t care.
This young life knew not
of times that were good,
when you are poor like Grace
this is often just understood.
Her years did end
as tragically as they began,
The country store
has stood sentry for over a century.
Now worn and tired,
beautiful in a simple way.
Each floor board
worn smooth as if polished
