awaken every day on the farm
sent to school with a kiss
a miller's daughter's charm
laced boots at 3rd eye
never higher
across the dusty path of datura
horse pastures and brier

welcomed to the schoolhouse
with a church bell toll
a brand new slate and a lunch bucket
both still cold
and dreams of keeping the boys
all hushed and beguiled
until 3:15 and a left
at the mercantile

I only wish this day would have lasted forever

Even the sweetest miller's daughter's got the devil in her.

her heart was bleeding when she came
to the elbow in the creek
the tanned boys without shirts
their knickers rolled to their knees
although its pre-ordained
she coyly asked for a swim
and as god is my witness
that girl...all the way to her chin

as the current swept her head over heels
towards the mill with its clicks and its wheels and squeals
well its a very good thing
her daddy slept on his job
didn't have to see the seized machinery
as his daughter wound up in a cog
