Anna loved walking among the corn with her grandfather.  One Fall day, her grandfather told her about the song of the corn.  They listened together until Anna heard the song.  That same day, her grandfather gave her a few kernels of corn for her to plant for her very own the next year.  During the winter, grandfather passed away.  Now Anna can't bear to part with the few kernels that were a gift from him.  What will happen to Anna's corn?
