‘Angel in a Field of Rye’

I watched her from a distance.
An image of colour in a silent field.
Serenity, soothed me in abundance.
Grasses swayed as starlings do;
In the dusk of evening o’er a meadow.
Motionless she gazed toward the blue.
My curiosity wanted to enquire; as
To her well-being.
An inner voice told me to avoid disturbance.
The midday sun warmed the bee,
The cranefly waltzed the Red Admiral.
The only disturbance to my infatuation.
Unmoving the maiden sat; still as the air.
There was something Godly in that Irish field.
In the distance I saw a multitude of doves.
I revelled at a heavenly choir in song.
She rose, floated on golden wings,
And in fading to the thin air, she was gone.
