Words for Wednesday

Corn Maiden

~ Adryan Rotica

Listen closely-

to a cornfield

for it speaks

in low hushed tones

to soothe the leaves

that rustle in

deep knowing whispers

of a time

in an age

when lightning could

kidnap and stow you

below the earth

as did happen to

the ”Corn Maiden”

who still

to this day

is held captive

under this ground

where animals

continue to help

dig her out

so she can

burst out into the sun

and be ready

to feed the world.
