Fields of Gold

You’ll remember me when the west wind moves
Among the fields of barley
You can tell the sun in his jealous sky
When we walked in fields of gold

So she took her love for to gaze awhile
Among the fields of barley
In his arms she fell as her hair came down
Among the fields of gold

Will you stay with me will you be my love
Among the fields of barley
And you can tell the sun in his jealous sky
When we walked in fields of gold

I never made promises lightly
And there have been some that I’ve broken
But I swear in the days still left
We will walk in fields of gold
We’ll walk in fields of gold

Many years have passed since those summer days
Among the fields of barley
See the children run as the sun goes down
As you lie in fields of gold

You’ll remember me when the west wind moves
Among the fields of barley
You can tell the sun in his jealous sky
When we walked in fields of gold
When we walked in fields of gold
When we walked in fields of gold

.

she heard the call

of golden grass

whispering siren songs

of warmth and memories

of love

she could close her eyes

and see him

tall

sun-haloed and

smiling

a breeze brushed

fingers across her face

lifted for a vanished kiss

.

they were young

life would be forever

love would never

wither

and grow old

and

die

.

so they loved

in the sun-warmed stretch

of golden fields

barley crushed

and springy

smelling of bread

and promises

.

and now

the room disappears

with the scent of

heated grain

and she knows again

the golden touch

that melts her

years away

and she dances

free of the husk

of life

slipping through

fields of

gold
