Blossom

This song came to me this morning…

Orange Blossom Honey

Yes I am home once more
Back in the fold now…some
Never alone yet lonely still
Almost the same as before

Except for being lonely for him

I remember his eyes true blue
Crying in a heavy downpour
Seems as if just last night
He had grabbed my heart

My everlovin’ broken heart

Had grabbed my hand at last
Only springtime last was clear
Said “Let’s run away together!
And stay together always,forever!”

He led me through a wilderness
To a pretty cabin in the forest
Far into piney woods so deep
On a mountain steep, his to keep

His eyes, have honestly outshown
Any other light I have ever known
His taste, orange blossom honey
Sweet and so completely lasting

Loved me ’til all strength was gone
Only weakness left in us both
When we became most vulnerable
Daddy burst in through his door

With a fully loaded rifle…

Said “My daughter is too young
To be here with you stranger,
To me you’re just some stranger!”
To both of us threatened danger

Loaded me up to take on down
Down to my momma’s valley
Only memories remain of him
He never came around again

To float in this zone beyond
Beyond his love, in desperation
Tho’ this reminder suits me well
Baby to be born any day now

I hope his child looks like him
And still I remember this…
Orange blossom honey
To go with Sassafrass tea

This painting will be the beginning of another blog/web site one of my proffessors from Kent State has encouraged me to do.
Vanishing Barns is a subject close to our hearts.
These big old farm barns are swiftly going by the wayside for many reasons. Age, time, weather, development, and simply the huge expense to keep them from falling in.

This photo is of a barn belonging to a friend. Ruston has painted a variety of his heros and we met him when we stopped to look.
