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"

Imbolc walk

looking down into the heart of the village~hidden down in the trees.

the first of the primroses~in a few weeks the banks along the lane will be a primrose carpet

this is the 'upper' village~we are the 'lower', needless to say those not of the area get confused easily!

looking up to rawlesbury camp~the iron age hill fort i have mentioned in earlier posts

a lovely walk indeed

we didnt go too far as i was getting tired too quickly, but we went far enough up to get some lovely views and it was cold but not too cold.
cody had a great time and got fantasticly muddy~he is now fast asleep on the rug by the fire.
when i got home i re-potted by basil that i keep in the kitchen, the poor thing was a bit pot bound, i now need to clear space on the window sill for the bigger pot.
our wild spring cleaning continued this afternoon~the larderwas the object of our attentions today.
we have a big walk in larder and it is easy to forget things that dissapear into the depths of it.
now it looks rather bare!
today has been a good day~i gave myself the day off from my studies and i felt quite giddy with all that free time!
but i have so enjoyed the day.

Dorset looks gorgeous. I cannot believe that those primroses flower in the wild.. they are something we have to buy in a pot!
but I guess our australian bush is beautiful in its own way.. *sigh* I need to constantly remind myself!

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