A Poem by Eddie Draper, a Mississippi Poet


My Angel Must Have Just One Wing

My angel must have
just one wing
She does not visit oft'-
But when she soars
around my realms
my spirits break on loft---

My angel must have
just one wing
my luck no constant streak---
But what beauty - 'neath that wing
Protector's guiding meek---

My angel must have
just one wing
Oh fly my way and light-
And curl your web
and drape my soul
I need your wing tonight---

by Eddie Draper

Mr. Draper, a native of the Mississippi Delta, now lives and works in Nashville, Tennessee where he is a songwriter and musician.
