The Flame Haired Solstice Dreamer

Cold winter brings the Everfrost and jewels every tree
In a forest new as birth and old as old can be
A flame~haired dreamer wanders there and shelters from the wind
And spins her dreams around the trees to break the ties that bind
She takes her thread and spins anew and how the Greenwood smiles
As she spins a spell for freedom and for her spirit Wylde

The dreamer finds an ancient oak and shelters in his lee
In a forest new as birth and old as old can be
Tis summer now and birdsong weaves its magick through her spells
And humming bees drum drowsily in the foxglove's bells
The dreamer sits beneath the oak with yarn upon her knee
And spins and knits and weaves her dreams and sets her spirit free

"When birds fall from the sky and the animals are dying, a new tribe of people...shall come unto the earth from many colors, classes, creeds, who by their actions and deeds shall make the earth green again. they will be known as the warriors of the Rainbow"

Hopi Prophecy

there's more... we ran out of fuel on the way home~isn't that typical? so while swampy was busy walking back to the showground at malvern i pulled out the knitting bag and got busy! but not one person stopped to see if i was okay, thats quite sad that people are too busy to stop even for a few moments.
loulou (swmapys daughter) bought me a 'new' old enamel pie dish from a girl called jo,who sells old enamel plates,bowls,cups,tupperware,vintage fabric etc etc and who i always buy at least one piece of enamel for pippin from. when i spoke with jo, she told me i was described by loulou as 'that mad woman in the blue van'~i think thats a compliment?!!!

All things share the same breath~the beast, the tree, the man, the air shares its spirit with all the life it supports.
