Lady at a Spinning Wheel
By Mike Lander on
An old “Lady at a Spinning Wheel” is our tribute to Stephen Foster’s My Old Kentucky Home. Perhaps it is her sad expression that moves our unconscious feelings, but I think that this image reflects her pioneer spirit and her will to survive in overcoming all that life has thrown her way.
“…Weep no more my lady,
Oh, weep no more, today
We will sing one song for the old Kentucky home
For the old Kentucky home far away….”
– Stephen Foster (1853)
