James Hamilton & Angels

A Poem by James Hamilton

James Smith Hamilton Series Part 2 - A poem series playing in the first half of the 19th century in the Old West

James Hamilton is sitting in the prairie on the ground,
his mind´s a half mile away in town.
Still thinking of what he saw today,
an angel that brought beauty in this world so gray.
Still he´s thinking if she might be an angel from hell,
because angels aren´t black this told him the priest well.
But as beautyful as she is what else than an angel can she be,
he asks himself starring at the old oak tree.
But sad he is because the angel isn´t free to fly,
she´s a slave, in chains will she die.
So he is crying in the prairie sitting on the ground,
and he starts to hate the white men in town.
