The Corn Field
An article from the October 2015 issue of THE STAR BEACON
By T Stokes
I stay each year in deepest Somerset after the Glastonbury Festival and I walk across farmland about four miles to buy fresh free-range eggs from a frail old lady whom I now know quite well.
This year the full moon is still visible in the morning sky, the same color as the corn in the field I walk through. I am winding down psychically after Glastonbury Festival, but as I walk back with my eggs, there is no wind and no birdsong, and the stillness of the air feels almost electric, and I am stopped suddenly in a cornfield as the spirit of a man stands up from the ground in front of me.
He says he had been in the earth quite some time with the other men, who now stand up behind him, and he says the lord of the manor told all the menfolk to prepare for a battle. He says they were all under threat and each man must do his bit.
He says over 100 men came from nearby villages to fight. They found a good place on slightly high ground on the Somerset levels just 12 miles from the annual festival and stood together in a line, all peasant farmers -- some with muskets, some with pitchforks and pikes -- facing a few soldiers and three cannons.
Then they saw a large number of the king's red-coated soldiers on horseback round the hill and charge them. The swords were flashing brightly in the sun as the disciplined cavalry charged through, chopping and slashing, killing possibly a third of the farmers. The cries of the wounded and dying is an unforgettable sound, which I hear ringing in the air.
The king's cavalry rounded and gathered together at the same place and charged the farmers again, but this time several of the men broke and ran. This led to everyone throwing down their weapons and running for their lives, and to a man they were cut down by the king's cavalry as they frantically tried to escape the mounted soldiers.
He says, "We are all buried in the corn field. Please pray for us, stranger. We are good men, but very afraid as we have been fearfully waiting so long for the judgment."
I tell him today, "You are free, and tell the others to go to God's appointed place. You must remain here no more. Go find your families."
And as they slowly walk away, some are no more than boys, who today would have been in school, and they had been lying, waiting in the corn field after some battle long, long ago.
On passing through later in the day, the corn field is alive with birdsong and the feel is totally different. I am sure those men have at last found peace.
