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"

~the beast~

dia dhuit
thank you for your lovely comments regarding my beast of a cooker!
golly am i proud!
kathyann~yes it was right place at right time, it was originally on e-bay and didnt sell so i contacted the seller who said it would go up for sale elsewhere but i would get first refusal.
i had a phone call last week and we agreed a price of...£70!!!
they had been offered that for scrap but didnt want it to suffer that~can you imagine scraping such a lovely thing?
Leanne~it really is a beast isnt it?! i have to admit i love just standing in the kitchen and looking at it~how sad am i? i just love old things, way back when they had such nice colors and there is something earthy, chunky and curvy about them.
apparently it came from the main PO in Bournemouth and the owners brother rescued it and used it for years. was amazes me is its amazing condition, the oven looks as if it has never been used. guess the postmen preferred beans on toast!
miss*r~yes we shall have a housewarming when you are over~how nice if we can all get together! you have an aga! then it must be like my rayburn~they are very similar.
swampy, when he has finished arguing with BT, has decided he is going to dismantle as much of it as he can and give it a real major clean.
today i really must finish my reading and start on notes for my next essay...

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