Jean The Storyteller - Poem by Suzae Chevalier

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.

    Poignant and inspiring. Perhaps somebody will recite our own poems after we're gone? (Report) Reply
