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"

dia dhuit
we have been to the new forset for mothers day this weekend~i am feeling so unwell right now, but i wanted to quickly check my e-mail and just to say hello.
i am conscious of missed e-mails so just want to say they will be on their way soon!
we had a lovely weekend, the forest is looking lovely and i was very naughty and went and looked at the bungalow that is thought locally to be the next one coming available~i took miss*r's view and projected myself onto it~imagining my 'beast' and other belongings into it and imagning myself coming out of what looks like a little fey doorway that is in a wall!
on that note...goodnight!

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